Blades goalkeeper Mark Howard wants to extend his stay at Bramall Lane beyond the end of the current campaign.
Howard, fresh from recording a club record eighth consecutive clean sheet, has told The Star: “I love it here. It’s a good club. We’ve got a great team and manager. Why would I not want to stay?”
But he added: “I would think I will speak to the manager towards the end of the season. It [my future] is not on my mind at the moment.”
United boss Nigel Clough, meanwhile, has let youngster Callum McFadzean join League Two side Burton Albion on loan until April 19.
Gary Rowett, the Burton boss, said: “We are delighted to have got Callum on board. He is a player that we have watched a lot and we are really grateful to Nigel [Clough] at Sheffield United for allowing him to join us.
“He can play anywhere down the left hand side, has good quality and his energy and versatility will be a great addition to the squad for this important month.”
