A number of Sheffield United supporters have hailed the latest confirmation from the Blades that they have tied down exciting young forward Iliman Ndiaye to a new long-term deal.
Ndiaye has emerged as one of the best young talents to have emerged through Sheffield United’s academy in recent years, with the forward having been the top scorer for the Blades’ under-23s last season.
That form was rewarded by Sheffield United last term with the 21-year-old handed his league debut for the Blades during their defeat at Leicester City towards the end of the Premier League season.
Slavisa Jokanovic has already seen it fit to hand Ndiaye the chance to come into his side this season, with him coming off the bench in the Blades’ 2-1 win against Derby County in the League Cup last month.
The 21-year-old has also made an impressive start to the campaign with Sheffield United’s under-23s with him scoring twice in their recent win against Charlton Athletic.

Sheffield United have now confirmed via their official club website that Ndiaye has put pen-to-paper on a new contract that keeps him at Bramall Lane until 2024.
Many Sheffield United fans were excited about this latest confirmation from the Blades and they were all urging Jokanovic to now hand him the chance to come into their side in the Championship.

Hopefully he will be involved with the first team now ⚔️

Get Ndiaye involved consistently now week in week out, look at how that Carvalho is getting on at Fulham, if he’s as rated as highly as they say as good as / best since Brooks Maguire Walker etc then he’s got to be continuously in first team now for me, looks some player🙏🏼 https://t.co/uXpv4pPjtK
