Madine Admits Agent Was Not Keen On Blades Switch

Gary Madine admits his agent was not as keen as he was to make the loan move to Sheffield United in the January transfer window.

The on-loan Cardiff striker ended a 24-game goal drought when he scored for the promotion-chasing Blades against Reading last weekend, and his overall display suggests he will be a key player for them in the run-in.

Madine admits he was a bit taken aback when he first found out that manager Chris Wilder was a fan of his – particularly given his reputation among fans of the Sheffield club.

“Our goalkeeping coach at Bolton mentioned that Chris liked me, and I said ‘I’d love to go there’,” said Madine.

“My agent wasn’t so keen because he knew the move would split opinion, but I know the way I play would be appreciated by the fans. “I’m never going to get them out of their seats by beating three or four players, but I put in 100 per cent every game and work hard. I’m glad they appreciate that and it was nice to top that off with a couple of goals.”
