Harry Maguire insists leaving Bramall Lane has never crossed his mind.
The Sheffield born, Academy graduate, has earned many admiring glances from elsewhere since breaking into the first-team in April 2011 and many pundits tipped the defender to leave in the recent transfer window.
On his commitment to the Blades and his future, Maguire said: "I get my head down and concentrate on playing football, I don't listen to the rumours because they affect people and I just want to focus on improving and learning, as I did last season.
"My future is with Sheffield United for the foreseeable future and hopefully I can help contribute to getting this fantastic club back to the top-flight.
"I have got three years on my contract and I think this squad is capable of getting promotion this season and building on from that next season in the Championship."
