DRFC Sharp determined to sign for Rovers

Billy Sharp was determined to sign for Doncaster Rovers this summer according to Sheffield United chief executive Trevor Birch.

Speaking on Sheffield United`s official website, Birch said, "After discussions with his agent that Billy would not sign a new contract and was determined to return to Doncaster."

Sharp was in the final year of his contract at Sheffield United and as been linked with a move away from Bramall Lane all summer with Burnley, Doncaster and Leeds leading the chase according to reports.

The 24-year-old who scored 15 goals in 35 appearances last season whilst on a season long loan at Doncaster from Sheffield United, recently turned down a move to last season`s Premier League side Burnley after the two clubs had agreed a deal.

Sharp has signed a three-year deal at the Keepmoat and signs for a club record transfer fee paid of £1.15 million.

He must have turned down a better deal at Burnley in favour of joining Rovers. Good to see a player joining a club for the right reasons and not all about the money.

Fair play to them for stumping up the money, a bit more pressure on this season now though. I am sure they will want to see some return on their investments.

A rare commodity, a player who joins a club because he actually wants to join them and turn down more money from another club. I take my hat off to Billy Sharp
