Blades Hero Gives Speed Backing
Sheffield United legend Brian Deane believes Gary Speed will be a success at Sheffield United.
Deane, who played alongside the Welshman for Leeds United told Yorkshire Radio of his admiration for his former teammate.
'He was a fine professional, well liked and very intelligent.'
'Speedo has played all of his life in the top division and people respect him. So I think it is a good appointment. He will bring some fresh ideas and it is a win situation for the club.'
It's expected that Speed's appointment will be confirmed at a news conference called for this afternoon at Bramall Lane.
