Sheffield United midfielder Louis Reed has signed a three-year contract.

The 17-year-old became the youngest player to appear for the Blades in a league match when he came off the bench in the 1-0 win over Rotherham in April.

He made his first start for the club in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Bristol City.

"It is incredible that he has only just turned 17, he has had a terrific pre-season and is progressing really well," manager Nigel Clough told the club website.external-link
