Left-back Danny Lafferty has completed a permanent move to Sheffield United from Burnley.
The 27-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the League One leaders following a successful loan move.
The Northern Ireland international has made 21 league appearances so far for the Blades, only once ending on the losing side, since heading to Bramall Lane at the end of August.
United boss Chris Wilder said: "Dan has been brilliant for us and he is another who has played a big part in helping us get to where we are now.
"He is an international footballer who has played the majority of his football in this country in the Championship and he has proved himself to be a dependable performer.
“Dan has been part of the success Burnley have enjoyed over recent times and I'm delighted and thankful to our Board for their continued backing."
Lafferty's permanent switch to South Yorkshire ends a four-year stay at Turf Moor for the former Derry City full-back, who has also had loan spells at Rotherham United and Oldham Athletic.
