Sheffield United boss Wilder signs new deal

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract to keep him at the club until the summer of 2024.

Wilder has guided his boyhood club to eighth place in the Premier league, having taken over in May 2016 when the Blades were in League One.

“Naturally, I’m delighted to sign a new deal until 2024 and commit to the club that is close to my heart,” Wilder told United’s website.

“I am grateful to (club owner) Prince Abdullah for taking the initiative and offering this contract. We’ve had a great few years and hopefully we can continue the upward curve – let’s see how far we can go on this journey.”
