Published Add your comment

Sheffield United goalkeeper Ian Bennett has signed a new one-year player-coach deal with the Championship club.

The 37-year-old will be added to the Blades' coaching staff for next season as well as continuing his playing duties.

"He has agreed a one-year extension to his contract and started his coaching path now," United manager Kevin Blackwell told the club's official website. "So in edition to being number two he will be working very closely with our goalkeepers in the development squad."
