Sheffield United chairman Kevin McCabe insists Matthew Kilgallon will not be allowed to leave the club on the cheap in the January transfer window.

Blades boss Kevin Blackwell has admitted he is resigned to losing the highly-rated defender, who has been linked with the likes of Newcastle, Hull and Bolton. Kilgallon has rejected United's offer of a new deal and the club risk losing the player on a free when his contract expires in the summer.

But McCabe told the Sheffield Star: "The only way Matthew will be going anywhere is if we receive an offer that's acceptable to this club. If we don't then he will be staying for the remainder of his deal. It's as simple as that. If it's not right for us then nothing will be happening."
