Sheffield United have signed Fulham defender Richard Stearman for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

The 29-year-old spent the majority of last season on loan with Wolves, making 19 appearances in all competitions.

He previously played 211 league games for the Molineux side between 2008 and 2015 before moving to Craven Cottage.

Fulham football Club statement
The Club can confirm that Richard Stearman has joined Sheffield United on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

The centre-back signed for Fulham on deadline day of the 2015 transfer window from Wolverhampton Wanderers, and made 30 appearances in his debut campaign.

After a couple of run-outs in 2016/17, he returned to Wolves on loan for the remainder of the season.

Everyone at Fulham would like to thank Richard for his contributions during his time at the Club, and wish him all the best at Bramall Lane.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder remarked: "Richard was our number one target throughout the summer and I'm delighted he has signed.

We've been on the look out for a central defender who has played extensively in the Championship and who possesses the qualities and characteristics to fit in with our group.

"Richard will undoubtedly strengthen us, he's a calm influence in the dressing room and every manager who I have spoken to about him says he has outstanding leadership qualities and will offer 100 per cent commitment, on and off the pitch.

"He had other opportunities to pursue, but I am delighted we have managed to tempt him to Bramall Lane."
