Sheffield United sign Manchester City midfielder Tommy Doyle on loan

Sheffield United have completed the signing of Manchester City midfielder Tommy Doyle on a season-long loan.

England Under-21 international Doyle, who came through City’s youth ranks, spent the second half of last campaign at Cardiff.

The 20-year-old has made seven first-team appearances for City since making his debut in a Carabao Cup tie against Southampton in October 2019.

“I’m delighted to be here, I’m ready and I can’t wait to start the season,” Doyle told the Blades club website.

“I got a phone call that Sheffield United were interested and it’s hard to say no to a club like this.

“I’m looking forward to meeting everyone, I already know one or two, but I’m focused on working and preparing for the new season.”

Doyle joined his new teammates in Portugal for a pre-season training camp ahead of the start of the Sky Bet Championship season at Watford on August 1.

Blades manager Paul Heckingbottom is confident Doyle can continue to show his potential next season.

“We are happy to bring in a player who has a lot of experience for his age,” Heckingbottom said.

“He’s had a few good loans before, been in the Manchester City first team and also played for England.

“We think he can add a lot of quality to our midfield. He can play in several positions, whether we play two or three, and tactically he is very good.

“We are convinced that he will fit in very well in our group. He knows how we want to play.
