NON-league striker Che Adams has signed for Sheffield United.

Newcastle United were among the clubs tracking the 18-year-old, who has been prolific for Ilkeston this season.

But Adams has opted to sign for the Blades, who have paid an undisclosed fee for his services.

Ilkeston manager Kevin Wilson said: “It’s a relief that it has finally been sorted, because there’s no doubt that all the activity and speculation has been a disruptive influence around the place.

“But I’m absolutely delighted and we all wish him well in his future.”
