Speaking after committing himself to the club for a further year, Chris Wilder believes the future at Bramall Lane is a bright one.

The Blades chief remarked: "What I said after the Preston game wasn't for any personal gain, it was a genuine concern and I wouldn't have said it otherwise.

"The owners, both of them, deserve credit for the discussions I've had with them and the way they've talked about the future of this football club, which always is and always should be the main focus.

"I made my feelings plain and clear. I want to be part of organisation that's together, ambitious and one that wants to succeed and progress. I'm sure the assurances I've been given will be met."

Wilder added: "I've always been very reluctant to get involved in any politics, but these things do happen in football, at a lot of clubs.

"I'm just glad it's been resolved in this manner and both the owners deserve enormous amount of credit for putting disagreements to one side for the good of the football club.

"We've been given funds to improve and I honestly believe we are in a great position to challenge in what is a really difficult division, that will be as strong as ever."
