Sheffield United striker Richard Cresswell was beaming as he signed his contract extension at Bramall Lane earlier this week.

Cresswell, who signed for United midway through last season finished the club’s top scorer, and believes he made the right decision stepping down from the Premier League.

‘It’s been a fantastic move for me personally. I came here to play football, even took a drop in wages, and things couldn’t have gone much better.

‘I managed to score plenty of goals and in the end I think I won the fans over, so I want to produce that level of performance for the next three years.’

Speaking of his long term ambitions, the former Stoke City forward believes he can help lead the club back to the Premiership, and thinks United can aim for the big time in 2011.

‘The reason I came here in the first place was to get this club back to the Premiership because everything is geared up for the top flight. I’m not here just to pick my money up, I’m here to win promotion.

‘I’m an ambitious individual and getting back into the Premiership is something that drives me on. We have got to set our sights on the big prize and we must give it a real good crack.’

  • The signing of Cresswell was questioned but he has proved us all wrong with his tireless running and crucial goals. An unselfish player who gave 100% wherever he played, he certainly has won the fans over. His ambitions for a return to the Prem are echoed by us all, but I think the rebuilding process will take a bit longer than he would like.

  • He does a good job upfront, but poor when he plays left side of midfield.hope Blackwell shelves that plan.

  • We all want premier return think well get in the play offs this year tho gud sighning in britton, quick and can pick out a quilty pass. Also herd that we are after ebanks blake on a season long loan now they got fletcher. Surman due to sign too.
