Sheffield United are flying at the moment and look like serious contenders for the top two in the Sky Bet Championship.
The Blades have been brilliant this campaign and Chris Wilder and co. look more than capable of getting into the Premier League this year.
If they do, it’ll be interesting to see who they keep at the club, too, and it looks as though Jack O’Connell is one man set to be a part of whatever the future holds in the coming years.
Indeed, it has been revealed by Pete O’Rourke that he has signed a new deal with the Blades:

O’Connell is part of an excellent Blades defence that has been hard to beat and very tough in the challenge.
They are physical but fair and great competitors and that has taken the club to the brink of a return to the top flight.
This is great news.
O’Connell has been excellent for the Blades in recent seasons and this is a nod to that fact.
He could well be a Premier League player next campaign, too, with the way the men from Bramall Lane are running at the moment in the second tier.
