Sheffield United have signed Blackpool striker Steven Davies on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old has scored five goals in 18 appearances for the Seasiders this season.

Davies, who joined Blackpool from Bristol City in June 2013, previously played under Blades boss Nigel Clough at Derby County.

The move effectively ends his Blackpool career, with Davies out of contract at the end of the season.

Seasiders manager Lee Clark said he allowed the former Tranmere Rovers trainee to leave Bloomfield Road after a "heart-to-heart" conversation with the player on Tuesday.

"He said he was a bit unhappy with certain things and would like the possibility of moving on," Clark told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"When a player is like that, you have to take it into considering because it is pointless having a player who is so unhappy around the club."

Davies could make his debut for the League One Blades in Saturday's home match against Fleetwood Town.
