Sheffield United have signed Brentford defender John Egan for a club record fee.
Egan is United’s second summer signing after ‘keeper Dean Henderson joined on-loan from Manchester United earlier in the window.
The 25-year-old centre-back signs for the Blades for a deal believed to be around £4m, a record fee for United.
Egan, who has two senior caps for the Republic of Ireland, has played one game for Sheffield United before after having a short loan spell at the club during his time at Sunderland six years ago.
After failing to make the grade at the Black Cats, Egan went on to Gillingham where he made 81 appearances during a two year stint.
He moved to Brentford in 2016, playing 63 times while being named club captain at the start of last season.
The Blades tried to tempt the Cork-born defender to Bramall Lane in January but had a bid denied by the fellow Championship club.
