Watford new-boy Mark Yeates says he does not hold any grudges against Micky Adams or former club Sheffield United.

Yeates, 26, publicly fell out with Adams during the Blades' disastrous relegation season last term, and first team appearances were few and far between.

"I think the only time I had a regular stint in the team was under Gary Speed," he told the Sheffield Star. "But all of a sudden we got a new manager in and we all know what happens when a new manager comes in, some players take to him and some don't."

He added: "It didn't work out between Micky and I but there are no hard feelings.

"I wish them all the best for the future and I hope that they can go straight back up because it is definitely not a club that deserves to be in League One."


The Irishman made 56 appearances for United. He signed a two-year deal at Vicarage Road on Wednesday for an undisclosed fee.
