Clough targets new faces

Sheffield United's search for a proven goalscorer will continue following the arrival of early summer signing Marc McNulty.

The Blades paid Livingston an undisclosed fee for McNulty, who has signed a three-year contract, but boss Nigel Clough does not expect the 22-year-old Scot to be the club's "main man" next season.

"I don't want to put that onus on his shoulders," Clough told the club's official website.

"He'll be one of three or four strikers, we hope, next season, but no, we're not going to say he's our main man to get goals, he'll be one of several.

"He came down to Derby two years ago and did well and we wanted to sign him, but couldn't quite manage it.

"He's kept plugging away, scoring goals up there and is a former team-mate of Stefan Scougall's. He's an exciting striker for the future."

Clough has also signed winger Jamal Campbell Ryce, whose contract at Notts County expires on July 1.

"Campbell-Ryce gives us a bit of experience," Clough added.

"He's been a good player at this level and the one above for some years now, he's always done well against us and he's the sort of exciting player that crowds like to see as well. He'll be a good addition to the squad."
