Sheffield United have signed former Crystal Palace midfielder Johnny Ertl on a two-year deal.
The 27-year-old, who was released by the Eagles at the end of last season, will officially join the Blades with fellow new-boy Daniel Bogdanovic on July 1.
United boss Kevin Blackwell told the club's official website: "He's a good lad who can do a very solid job at right-back, central midfield and even at centre-half.
"He has played enough times in the Championship for me to know he can come in and do it for us here at Bramall Lane."
