Goalkeeper George Long departed Bramall Lane for the last time yesterday and made the switch out to Hull City.

The transfer went through for an officially undisclosed fee and the 24-year-old Academy graduate now reunites with former United gaffer Nigel Adkins. As the Blades announced his departure they also stated that we have secured a future sell-on fee for the talented stopper, so despite letting him go we expect him to go on and have a good and rewarding career.

He did however only feature five times under manager Chris Wilder and he spent the season of 2017/18 out on loan in League One with AFC Wimbledon. Prior to Wilder’s arrival at the club, he did make 123 appearances in total for the first-team. Having made his debut back in May 2011, his last appearance came in November 2016.

He was clearly wished well for the future – especially with a sell-on clause – and fans were also quick to thank him for his efforts between the sticks.
