Kieran Wallace says he is 'delighted' to have signed a new long-term contract with at Bramall Lane, less than a year after joining from non-league.
The 20-year-old penned a new deal until the summer of 2018 after making the most of his first-team opportunities this season and impressing boss Nigel Adkins, who said he want to give the versatile performer more 'security and stability' to help aid his continuing development.
And the former Nottingham Forest trainee, who joined the Blades from Ilkeston FC in November 2014, is eager to repay the faith that has been placed in him.
Wallace commented: "For the first time in my career I have been given a contract that means I focus all my attentions into my game rather than worrying about the future.
"I have enjoyed being part of the squad since day one of pre-season, like everyone else, I started with a blank piece of paper and I have exceeded my own expectations in terms of how much I have played.
"But I want to keep learning and developing, I want to keep taking my chances when they come and hopefully now I pay back the Club and the Gaffer for the trust and commitment they have shown in giving me this contract."
