Sheffield United have agreed to sign Derby defender Jordan Stewart with Lee Hendrie moving the opposite way.

Hendrie, 32, joined United from Aston Villa in 2007 while ex-Leicester trainee Stewart, 27, joined Derby from Watford in May 2008.

Blades boss Kevin Blackwell told BBC Radio Sheffield: "It's an opportunity for Lee to get some football and allows us to make a saving on wages.

"Jordan will give us cover at left-back but he can also play wide on the left."

He will add experience to the squad, although saying that I don't see where he will fit in. With Commons, Teale, Croft, Davies, Green, Savage, Pearson, Livermore, Pringle, Mendy and Clough saying he wants a small squad I'm a little confused as to why we need him.

Derby County have beaten the transfer deadline to swoop to sign Sheffield United midfielder Lee Hendrie, with Jordan Stewart moving in the opposite direction.

The 32-year-old midfielder - who has one England Cap to his name - brings a wealth of experience with him after making well over 300 career appearances and he has signed a contract at Pride Park until the end of the season, subject to FA and Football League approval.

Birmingham-born Hendrie began his career with Aston Villa after graduating through their youth system and he went on to make 308 appearances for Villa between 1995 and 2007.

After a string of impressive England U21 displays and consistent form for Villa, Hendrie earned International honours for England under Glenn Hoddle in 1998, coming off the bench against the Czech Republic.

Hendrie enjoyed a successful loan spell at Stoke City during the 2006/07 season after falling out of favour at Villa Park before joining Sheffield United in the summer of 2007.

He made 26 appearances during his two seasons at Bramall Lane and also had loan spells at Leicester City and Blackpool.

Stewart, 27, joined the Rams last summer from Watford and has not figured in Manager Nigel Clough's this season and last appeared for the Rams in April. He had two years remaining on his Rams contract.

not everything.signings yes.I cant get excited about us signing players who are not playing reular football and are over 30.If that means im negative about Nige then I suppose I am,although he has my full support and he has improved things since jewell.

If we sell Hulse then I will be very negative about the board.

Im not a wrist slasher,and not a happy clapper.I care about the club I love and I think the fans deserve better.
