His medical has already been completed and he could go straight into the squad as Sheffield United host Preston North End at Bramall Lane on Tuesday, September 14.
He has played club football in four different countries, picking up 62 caps for the Algerian national team and was first brought to English football by Mick McCarthy when he was manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2010.
He has made 218 appearances in English football and is looking forward to his latest stint, telling sufc.co.uk: “I’m very pleased to have signed and I can’t wait to play for the team. It’s something special for me to come back to the UK, so I am really happy. I’d like to thank the manager and the club for allowing me to come to train and have the opportunity to show what I can do. I am really happy to end up with a contract now until the end of the season, so I am up for the challenge and ready to start.”
Guedioura becomes the Blades’ fifth arrival of the summer, joining Robin Olsen, Morgan Gibbs-White, Conor Hourihane and Ben Davies.
