Long term deal for Blades keeper

Sheffield United and England U19 starlet George Long has signed a new four-year deal keeping him at Bramall Lane until June 2016. 18-year-old Long, who has made four appearances for the Blades this season, has been the subject of interest from Premier League clubs, but manager Danny Wilson was delighted with the youngster’s decision to stick with his hometown club. “I didn’t see Joe Hart but I heard how good he was at that age,” said Wilson, “I think George also has the potential to have a very strong career and follow that line … I certainly think he will be a Premiership goalkeeper.”
