With Sheffield United achieving promotion to the Premier League in the 2018/19 Championship campaign, everyone knows it’s going to be a big summer ahead for manager Chris Wilder as he looks to tweak the squad to enable us to have the best possible chance of consolidating our position in the top flight next year.

We’ve already seen the departure of five players, with a further seven players made available for transfer and one of those released was 30-year-old midfielder Paul Coutts.

Having come in from Derby County during the January 2015 window, he’s more than played his part in our turn in form under Wilder and he does leave with 111 starting appearances to his name, 25 showings from the bench with five goals returned.

As all fans know, there’s no room for sentiment in football if you want to move on and progress as a club, but that doesn’t mean the news wasn’t greeted with some sadness and disappointment.
