Cotterill Expected To Sign In A Few Days

David Cotterill is expected to complete his loan move to Swansea City within a few days.

It's believed that everything has been sorted regarding his move from Sheffield United, but it's likely that we'll have to wait until Monday morning before the news is official.

The 21 year-old Welsh striker has fallen out of favour with Blades manager Kevin Blackwell and he's looking to get regular first team football elsewhere.

Cotterill was at the Liberty Stadium last night as he watched an impressive Swansea City side completely dominate and beat Derby 1-0, thanks to Bessone's late strike.

He said:

'I just want to make it clear that this has got nothing to do with anything other than the fact I haven't been playing.

'I've heard suggestions that my wife couldn't settle up here and that there were things going on with my family but nothing could be further from the truth.

'We moved from Manchester to Yorkshire and, in fact, my wife couldn't be happier.

'We've made a lot of great friends both inside and outside the club. But I need to be playing, especially at this stage of my career, and obviously I wasn't doing much of that.

'I've got my place in the international team to consider as well and it's a very important time.

'So if people are hearing anything different then I just want to let them know that it's wrong.'


It's also understood that the loan move could be made permanent in January as it's believed that the two clubs have agreed a fee.

Cotterill added:

'I've phoned everyone at United, including the lads, to wish them all the best for the future. I sincerely mean that.

It's a great club, a massive club to be honest, and the boys are a great bunch. The support base is huge and I hope they get into the Premier League as well.'
