Following his various loan spells in France, Calvé arrived at Bramall Lane on trial in July 2010. Having played one pre-season game, then Blades boss Kevin Blackwell opted not to sign him. However, following Blackwell's departure a few weeks later, incoming boss Gary Speed quickly revived the move and Calvé signed a one year loan deal with the Yorkshire club and suggested a desire to remain with Sheffield United following the completion of his loan spell.
Calvé scored his first ever career goal in his début game for the Blades against Preston North End at the end of August, smashing a 35 yard shot into the top corner. Despite an impressive start to his Blades career Calvé failed to cement himself in the first team, making only eighteen appearances that season. With the arrivale of yet another new manager, Micky Adams, he was deemed surplus to requirements and was eventually released from his contract at the start of April 2011.
