Coady extends Blades stay

Sheffield United have extended the loan of Conor Coady from Premier League club Liverpool.

The midfielder, who has made 23 appearances this season, will remain at Bramall Lane until February 24.

"We have extended the loan of Conor and will see how things progress," manager Nigel Clough told the club's official website.

"Obviously the lad wants to be playing regularly, so we thought in the first instance it would be wise to sort out the short-term.

"He will certainly have benefited from this loan and he has proved to be a useful performer to have in our squad too."
