Samir was unveiled as Chris Wilder’s first acquisition of the transfer window this morning after agreeing a three-and-a-half year contract at Bramall Lane.
After working with him for many years, It gives us great pleasure to be able to help deliver this move for Samir, and the future is very bright ahead.
“We are all really pleased for Samir and this is an exciting move for him. Sheffield United have a fantastic history and I know he can’t wait to get started and meet his new teammates.” Phil Korklin – Sidekick Management
The highly technical attacking midfielder, originally from Arsenal and then Aston Villa, moved on loan to MK Dons during the 2013/14 season and then joined them permanently in August 2014.
Moving to Sheffield United for an undisclosed fee from MK Dons, Samir was nearly an ever present last season in the Championship, making 43 appearances.
“Samir is the right age, has a great pedigree from his time at Villa and MK and he is an exciting player,” said Wilder “he is an attacking midfielder who can fit into a number of positions and we are looking forward to introducing him to our great group.”
Samir was thankful for his time at MK Dons but equally looking forward to making the move North “I’ve had a really great experience at MK and I have nothing but fond memories of the club. This is a fresh and exciting challenge for me and one that I intend to take with both hands”.
