Au revoir David.

As predicted, David Sommeil has completed his free transfer move to Premiership newcomers Sheffield United.

"Sommeil was signed for £3.4m from Bordeaux by former City boss Kevin Keegan in January 2003 but played only 17 games for the club last season".

Great work Kev.

vote it up!

Glad to see the back of him, he was very poor from day 1. A complete and utter waste of money. He reprensents everything which is bad about some continental players with his diving and rolling over (x10) every time he was tackled. Typical Keegan signing

Not a good signing then from a Blades point of view then?

Neil Warnock was just on Radio Sheffield singing Sommeil's praises but has been reluctant to sign foreign players in the past due to their "flamboyance" and temperament.

We'll see I guess!

Can't agree. When he came back from his latest injury he played well, given the chance. He fit in well at either right-back or in the Centre. I think he'll do well for Sheffield United and wish him the best - he was always a trier. Oh - and remember, Keegan was buying at the height of the market, so players were all more expensive then.

thought he did ok(ish) when he got a run in the team, but not good enough for the future. wish him well at sufc

I tought that he was a decent player, was best at right back, but could be used in the heart of the defence also, and most important he was a defender with a nose for goal.

Better player than D Mills, we should have retained him. Is good in the tackle and always gives 100%. Be a good signing for the Blades. Wish him luck.

I think he was a solid, versatile squad player and that we should have kept him in preference over some of the chaff we still have on board. Sheff U have signed a solid premiership pro.

To be fair to Sommeil, he was probably turning in the best of his time at City at the end of last season.

We're not short on defenders though and realistically he wouldn't be near to a starting position in a full strength side so I can't argue with the decision to let him go.
