Sheffield United have signed former Derby County striker Chris Porter on a free transfer.

Porter has penned a two-year deal at Bramall Lane after being released by Derby earlier this summer following an injury-hit campaign at Pride Park.

The 27-year-old is United's second signing in recent days following the arrival of Ryan Flynn from Falkirk.

Blades boss Danny Wilson was delighted to land Porter as he looks to improve the club's attacking options.

"He is a terrific lad who will work his socks off for the cause and will score us goals," Wilson told the club's official website.

"We know what he is about and he is very hungry after overcoming some injury problems."
