SUBJECT to the receipt of international clearance, the Wingmakers have signed 19-year-old Jake Eyre, a free agent following his release by Sheffield United.

The Chester-born attacking midfielder was a trainee with the Blades who was promoted to the senior squad by his former manager David Weir.

But, despite being named on the bench for a League One fixture with Colchester United, he failed to make a first team appearance while at Bramall Lane.

During his time with United, Eyre was loaned to local Northern Premier League oufit Stocksbridge Park Steels over Christmas 2013.

A highlight of Eyre's time with United was volleying home the winner two minutes from time in the Under-21s' steel town derby against fierce rivals Sheffield Wednesday in August last year.
