Jagielka commits future to Blades
Phil Jagielka
Jagielka will be a Blade until at least 2009
Sheffield United midfielder Phil Jagielka has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

Jagielka had been linked with a move away from United in recent months, with the club appearing to be stalling on contract talks.

But the 24-year-old has now put pen-to-paper until 2009, with the option of another year.

Midfielder Stephen Quinn, 20, has also committed himself to the Blades for the next four years.

Michael Tonge, Chris Armstrong and Leigh Bromby all signed new deals over the summer and manager Neil Warnock was pleased to see Jagielka's future secured.

He said: "Obviously we've been working hard on this and we knew Jags was happy here and wanting to be in the Premiership.

"It's great for us and we're all delighted he has achieved what he has with us and look forward to him proving himself still further.

"We now hope he'll be able to fulfil his dreams with us."

Warnock has high hopes for Irish youngster Quinn, who is currently on the sidelines through injury.

The boss added: "Stephen is someone we have high hopes for.

"Although he is injured at the moment we felt it appropriate to reward him for a very good season last time out by extending his contract."
