Louis Reed became Chesterfield’s tenth summer signing, joining the club on loan from Sheffield United until May 2018. He is the youngest player ever to represent Sheffield United in league football, having come through the Blades academy ranks.
Reed made his first-team debut in a 1–0 home victory against Rotherham United on April 8, 2014.
After an impressive performance in a win over Fenerbache in a pre-season friendly, Reed signed a three-year professional contract with United and went on to make his first start for the club in the opening game of the 2014/15 season.
Reed has also represented England at U20 level, making his debut for the Three Lions in October 2016 against the Netherlands.
The on-loan midfielder scored his first career goal for the Spireites, with a well taken strike in the 1-1 draw with Colchester United on September 12.
