Sheffield United defender Neill Collins has agreed a new two-year deal, with the option of an extra 12 months.

The 29-year-old has made 69 league appearances for the Blades since joining from Yorkshire rivals Leeds in January 2011.

He told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I'm very pleased that it's all done and dusted because I was keen to get it sorted.

"I just want to improve as a player and help the club get out of this division and consolidate in the Championship."

He added: "It feels good to be playing in a team that is winning games and keeping clean sheets but we won't rest on our laurels.

"I enjoy working with the management team and the club itself is great to be at."
