Some key players are in the final weeks of their contracts and manager Paul Heckingbottom admits it’s something that constantly comes to mind.
Last month, the Blades exercised the option to extend Billy Sharp’s contract until the end of next season. The United captain has been a key figure in the club’s push for the play-offs.

“While always focusing on the next game and the short term, we have to make good decisions for the benefit of the club also in terms of next season, what it looks like and what it looks like in the bigger picture of the club. season after.
“Someone has to be consistent with the message and the building. If you make good decisions now, someone will benefit in five or 10 years. It’s important that we deal with that and make sure they are consistent.”
