Blades bring in Wolves winger

The 19-year-old looked set to join Peterborough on a permanent deal

last month having helped Posh win promotion to the Championship

while on loan there for the whole of last season. But the move fell

through and Blades boss Danny Wilson has now stepped in to secure

his services until January 3, 2012. “He is just what we need right

now,” Wilson told the club’s official website. “Nathaniel is

strong, fast and will be a good addition to our squad as we look to

make a powerful start.” Mendez-Laing , who is yet to make a

first-team appearance for Wolves, is set to go straight into the

squad for Saturday’s big kick-off away to Oldham.
