Chris Basham has signed a new deal for staying at the club until the summer of 2022 at Sheffield United.
Basham is the longest-serving player of the Blades and has played a key role in the club ‘s rise from League One to the Premier League under manager Chris Wilder. The 32-year-old defender has made 282 appearances since arriving at the 2014 Blackpool free transfer.
“I am glad the contract was decided and signed off,” Basham told the official website of the club.
“I look forward to the future, to working with the manager, and to help drive the club forward. We all aspire for the same thing, beginning with the manager and all over the club, we all have the same goals and the same objectives. Within the community, there is a real cohesion and naturally, that makes you want to be part of this journey, we don’t know there’s a lot more to come. Since day one, the club has backed us and that’s continued during our rise to the Top League, now we’re here we want to develop more and that’s the priority ahead of going back for pre-season later this month.”
Following promotion from the Sky Bet Championship, Sheffield United finished 9th in the Premier League this season.
