Dearden Joins Sheffield United

Dearden Joins Sheffield United

Blackpool's chief scout Billy Dearden has joined Sheffield United.

As reported by Vital earlier this week, new Blades boss Danny Wilson made an approach for Dearden earlier this month, an offer that he has accepted since returning from holiday.

The 67 year old had been 'Pool's chief scout for three years but was free to leave Bloomfield Road due to the fact that he was not under contract

There is no news as yet as to who will replace him - perhaps we're just going to sign players purely on how they look on a DVD in future?!
