John Fleck has been rewarded for his brilliant Premier League season with a new Sheffield United contract.

The Scotland international has travelled with the Blades in their journey from League One to European contenders in English football’s top flight. Their latest result was a 1-1 draw with Brighton.

It was a game in which Fleck showed why Chris Wilder’s side have opted to hand him a big contract extension until 2023. Scotland’s Blades battler earned Man of the Match during the Seagulls draw.

This season has been brilliant for Fleck. He has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Wilder’s men, scoring five times and assisting on two occasions. He only had 17 months left on his Bramall Lane deal, so they’ve moved to tie him down for the foreseeable future.

His form in the EPL has caught they eye of Steve Clarke, who handed him his Scotland debut against Russia in October. He’s surely well in contention now for next month’s Euro 2020 play-off matches against Israel and potentially Norway or Serbia.
