Gallagher offloaded to Blades on loan

Loan spell: Paul Gallagher
Leicester City winger Paul Gallagher has been granted a loan move to Sheffield United in a one-month deal.

28-year-old Gallagher has seen his starting position come under threat following the arrival of Ben Marshall in January and Anthony Knockaert this summer and has made just one competitive appearance for the Foxes this season.

Gallagher joined City from Blackburn Rovers in 2009 and was part of Nigel Pearson's nearly-successful Play Off campaign that season. He has racked up 130 appearances for the Foxes and scored 28 goals in his time at the King Power Stadium, including a memorable hat-trick against Scunthorpe United.

During his month at Bramall Lane, Gallagher could play six matches as the Blades push for promotion from England's third tier.
