Aston Villa defender Gary Cahill has joined Coca-Cola Championship side Sheffield United on a three-month loan deal.

The 21-year-old England Under-21 international has been restricted to just two appearances for Martin O´Neill´s men so far this term and will move to Bramall Lane in a bid to play first-team football.

"I´m perfectly happy at Villa, I just need games," he told the club´s official website. "My career´s going fine but I felt what was important was keeping it going by playing games."
