Former Sheffield United loanee, Jay O’Shea, has turned down a two-year contract to join the Blades in the Championship.
The attacker was on loan at Bramall Lane from Chesterfield for the second half of last season, and scored three goals for the Blades.
In a statement, Chris Wilder, Sheffield United manager, said: “We offered Jay a good two-year deal but he has exercised his right to turn it down and look elsewhere.
“We thank him for his contribution in the second half of the season and wish him all the best for the future.”
Last week, Wilder revealed he had set O’Shea a deadline to make his decision over the contract after he helped them win the League One title.
