Sheffield United have brought back one of the club’s most popular players in recent times. John Brayford spent a spell on loan at the Blades last season and boss Nigel Clough has moved to snap up the famously bearded right back on a permanent basis, shelling out well over £1million for the privilege.

Here’s what United fans had to say about Brayford’s ‘homecoming’.
