Chesterfield have made a tenth summer signing with the capture of midfielder Louis Reed on a season-long loan deal from Sheffield United.
Reed, who has represented England at U20 level, had no hesitation in accepting the offer to join the Spireites. "When I got the call to say that Chesterfield were interested in me, I couldn’t turn it down," he said.
“It’s a big club who are obviously not where they need to be and hopefully I can help them get back to where they belong.”
Reed became the youngest player to turn out for the Blades in a league match when he made his debut at the age of 16 years and 257 days old. Still only 19, he has made a total of 59 appearances for the South Yorkshire club.
The Barnsley-born player is flying out today to join his new team-mates at their pre-season training camp in Spain and Portugal.
Director & company secretary Ashley Carson said: "We have delivered on our promise by bringing in quality players to rebuild the squad.
"I am delighted with the response from the fans as we have seen an increase in season ticket sales over the last couple of weeks, which is very encouraging."
