Higdon is the striker Sheffield United have been after for a long time, he's good at playing the ball on the floor and brining others into play. When he hit form at Motherwell, a certain Jamie Murphy was in the team and was a big help to Higdon helping him score them goals. Clough said ""He ticks a lot of boxes, including goalscoring record, experience, as well as being a big lad who can hold the ball up," said Blades chief, Clough.
"He scores different types of goals, he uses his left, right and head and we think the crowd will take to Michael.
"If you look at the quality of crosses we've put in over the pre-season period, it should be of major benefit to Michael. Flynn, Murphy, Harris, Alcock and Davies have all been whipping in balls - he has got to relish the prospect of working with Ben Davies.
"He's 30-years-old, experienced and began at Crewe so is technically sound. Michael will be a major asset to us."
