NEWPORT County AFC are in line to receive another financial boost on top of their FA Cup earnings following former midfielder Lee Evans’ move to Sheffield United.

One-cap Wales international Evans has joined the Blades from Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers in a deal worth a reported £750,000.

County will land 15 per cent of the fee, as stipulated in the terms of the player's transfer to Wolves.

Evans left the Exiles for Wolves in January 2013 having made his senior debut the previous season at the age of 17.

He went out on loan to Bradford City for the 2015-16 campaign and was at Wigan Athletic for the first part of this term.

The 23-year-old made his international debut last November, coming on as a second-half substitute in Wales’ friendly draw with Panama.

“I would like to thank Wolves for giving me the opportunity to play at such a big club and thank the supporters who were good to me during my time there,” he said.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my five years with Wolves and I hope the club continues to enjoy the success it has so far this season.”

Blades boss Chris Wilder added: “Lee is a great age with his best years ahead of him.

“We’ve watched him and monitored his progress for a while and we’re delighted to get him permanently.

“He is a young international, he fits in with what we’re about and is an excellent player who we hope will add further depth and competition to our midfield.”

Evans has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with the Bramall Lane club, who are currently seventh in the Championship, one point outside the play-offs.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s James Wilson will spend the remainder of the season at the Blades after his loan deal was extended.

Wilson was first scouted by Manchester United at the age of seven and has since progressed through the ranks at Old Trafford.

The striker made his Red Devils debut in the Premier League against Hull City as an 18-year-old, scoring twice in a 3-1 victory.
