Liverpool: Coady To Remain At Sheffield United

Reds midfielder Conor Coady has extended his loan spell at Sheffield United until the end of the season...

Liverpool youngster Conor Coady will remain with League One side Sheffield United for the rest of the campaign.

The midfielder, 21 today, initially departed for Bramall Lane in the summer on a six month loan deal but, with that contract set to expire, a new 93-day extension has now been agreed.

The development means Coady will see out the season with Nigel Clough's side, much to the manager's delight.

"Conor has steadily improved throughout his time here and as a young player we are more than pleased with his progress, hence the decision to extend his stay," commented the ex-Liverpool player to SUFC.co.uk.

"It was always the intention to keep him here and after his performances in the last few weeks the decision became easy, especially with Liverpool keen for him to gain further experience in our first-team.

"We told him recently that we wanted to see him chipping in with more goals, then he goes and scores against Nottingham Forest and at Gillingham."

The Merseysider has scored four goals in 32 appearances since making his Blades debut on the opening day of the season, with three of the strikes coming during 2014.

United currently sit 17th in the League One standings, three points above the dropzone, but they have a number of games in hand as a result of an impressive run to the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Coady is an England youth international who has represented the Three Lions at U16, U17, U18, U19 and U20 level.

He made two first team appearances for Liverpool last season; in the Europa League against Anzhi Makhachkala and as a substitute in the 3-1 Premier League win over Fulham.
