Chris Basham has further demonstrated his long-term commitment to the Blades by signing a new contract, which runs until the summer of 2022.

United's longest serving player, who arrived on a free transfer from Blackpool in the summer of 2014, scooped the Player of the Year and the Players' Player of the Year award at Friday's virtual awards evening and was instrumental to the success in finishing ninth in the club's first season back in the Premier League.

The 32-year-old, who is approaching 300 appearances for the Blades, started every top-flight game last season and has prided himself on his fitness, versatility and reliability since arriving at S2.

Upon putting pen-to-paper, Basham remarked: "I'm delighted the deal has been agreed and signed off. I'm looking forward to the future, working with the manager and helping pushing the club on further.

"We're all striving for the same thing, starting with the manager and throughout the club, we all have the same ambitions and same goals.

"There is a genuine togetherness within the group and obviously that makes you want to remain part of this journey, we certainly think there is much more to come.

"The club has backed us since day one and that has continued throughout our rise to the Premier League, now we are here we want to improve further and that is the focus ahead of returning for pre-season later this month."
