Blades reveal big jump in profits
Sheffield United have announced operating profits of 6.3m for the latest financial year.

Taking transfers into account, retained profits for the year ending June 2007 were 500,000, compared to a loss of just under 8m for the previous year.

The Championship side's turnover increased by 68% to 45.8m, but wages rose 67% on the year before.

"We are not solely dependent on Premier League football to progress, but it is a principle objective," the club said.

Launching the new figures, Blades chief executive Jason Rockett added: "I am pleased to be able to report a retained profit for the first time in many years."
