Sheffield United midfielder Nick Montgomery has signed a new three year deal at Bramall Lane, despite being intent on leaving the club.

As the season drew to a close, it appeared Montgomery would be leaving the Blades, but after a good finish, the midfielder has opted to extend his stay.

Montgomery’s new deal could see him remain with United until 2013, and the re-signing of Chris Morgan was a major factor in his decision.

It was important to me that Morgs signed a new deal. We’ve been through a lot together, promotion, relegation and a play-off final.

Speaking about his future plans, Montgomery also added. ‘It’s great to have the contract talks sorted. I’ve had some special years with United and now I’m focused on looking forward to playing my part in getting the Blades back to the Premier League.’

United’s Chief Executive Trevor Birch, who was present for the signing, said: ‘Nick is one of the players who, like (captain) Chris Morgan, we see as being part of the backbone of the squad for next season.

He brings valuable experience for Kevin Blackwell and his contract signing is another significant step forward by the club as it seeks to mould a squad to mount a sustained challenge in the Championship.’
