Sheffield United starlet David Parkhouse has agreed to sign a new long-term deal at the club, according to HITC Sport.
Parkhouse is rated as a top young talent by Sheffield United and they have got their youngster to agree to a new contract despite him attracting interest from Manchester United in the past.
Man United had been hoping to prise the teenage talent away from Sheffield United as their new academy coach Nick Cox previously worked with the Blades.
But it looks like the 18-year-old is staying at Bramall Lane and extending his four-year stay with Sheffield United after choosing to join them ahead of Birmingham City and Celtic back in 2014.
The Irishman has been in good form for Sheffield United’s academy teams, scoring a number of goals at youth level and he is thought to be a future first-team star for the club and for Northern Ireland.
The Blades appear to have got him to commit his future until 2020 with this new deal.
This is a real statement of intent from Sheffield United.
After losing prize youngster David Brooks to Bournemouth, selling another starlet would have been tough to take.
Man United are a big draw as well but Parkhouse’s route to the first-team looks much clearer at Bramall Lane.
