Cardiff City

Madine looks for Blades switch

25th April 2019, 15:22 by Nick Harris

Cardiff City striker Gary Madine wants to turn his loan deal at Sheffield United into a permanent switch.

The 28-year-old joined up with the Blades at the start of the year after a barren spell in south Wales, where he felt he never really got the rub of the green following his £6m move from Bolton 12 months before.

Madine has been a big part of the Blades squad, who are within touching distance of the Premier League, and he wants to stay in South Yorkshire beyond the end of the season.

He told their website: "This feels like home to me now, I'd be devastated if I had to move on from here at the end of the season, I'd love to stay for as long as the manager wants me to and hopefully that's beyond the summer.

"I knew I'd enjoy it here, that's why I jumped at the chance to come but I wasn't thinking about the future, I just wanted to come and play games, score goals and win promotion again.

"These lads are a special bunch, working daily with this manager and his staff is something I've relished. I don't want to be disrespectful to Cardiff City, but it's a long way from home and it's never really happened for me there.

"I'm settled here, I'm content and happy. I've proved I play my best football when I'm happy and I couldn't be happier than I am at Sheffield United."
