Sheffield United have re-signed goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale from Bournemouth for £18.5m.

Ramsdale, 22, joined the Cherries from Chris Wilder’s Blades – then in League One – in 2017 and had loan spells at Chesterfield and AFC Wimbledon.

He made 37 Premier League appearances for relegated Bournemouth last season and was named the club’s player of the year for the 2019-20 campaign.

“I’m very fortunate to be able to come back to a place I call home,” he said.

“I’m just excited to get going, see the lads I left behind and meet the new ones now in the team,” added Ramsdale, who has signed a four-year deal.

“I’m delighted, it wasn’t an easy decision to leave Bournemouth, but when a club comes in for you, shows that faith it has and is willing to pay this sort of money then obviously I’ve got to do a lot to repay it, but my smile has been ear-to-ear since I walked back through the door.”
