Reported January Rangers target Tom Davies has claimed he’s “made up” to sign a deal with Premier League Sheffield United after leaving Everton.

The 25-year-old former England youth international has signed a three-year deal at Bramall Lane following his departure from Goodison Park in the summer.

Tom Davies had come through the youth ranks at Everton but has expressed his excitement at joining newly-promoted Sheffield United this season.

“I’m made up to be here and can’t wait to get started,” said Tom Davies, on arriving at Sheffield United.

“It was time for me to go from the previous club to join Sheffield United and I’m really excited for it, I think it is a great project that the team have here and I’m full of enthusiasm and hunger to get going.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world so when Sheffield United came knocking I thought this was the place to be, playing against the best teams and the best players.

“I played here (Bramall Lane) twice during Covid, and I think that helped Everton, but I’m looking forward to getting on the pitch in front of the full crowd and showing the fans what I’m about.”

Rangers-linked Tom Davies heads to Sheffield United

Whilst there has been no mention of Rangers interest in Tom Davies this summer, the midfielder was one of the names being mentioned as an Ibrox target back in January.

Reports originating in TalkSPORT had claimed that Rangers held a legitimate interest in making a move for the out-of-contract Everton midfielder.

But as the transfer window rolled on, incoming Rangers Michael Beale addressed the reports and claimed that whilst Tom Davies is a good player, he was not someone being chased by the Gers.

This comes after the Ibrox boss had fuelled rumours regarding a signing by praising the midfielder in the days previous.

Rangers would go on to sign Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell and Standard Liege star Nicolas Raskin, with both emerging as key figures in Beale’s new-look Ibrox side.

But as Tom Davies officially moves to Sheffield United, it’s finally put an end to those Rangers links as both the Ibrox side and the Merseysider move on.
