Matthew Kilgallon staying at Sheffield United

Kilgallon was told to make a decision on his future by boss Kevin Blackwell

Sheffield United defender Matthew Kilgallon is set to stay at Bramall Lane until the end of the season, according to his agent Paul Masterson.

The 25-year-old has been the subject of a bid by one club, believed to be Newcastle United.

But Masterson told BBC Radio Sheffield: "We sat down and decided we're happy at Sheffield. We could end up in the Premiership and reassess things there."

Masterson added that Kilgallon wanted to put transfer speculation behind him.

"We sat down with Kevin (Blackwell) and Sam (Ellis), who he has got great respect for, and we said let's just draw a line under it," Masterson added.

"You don't need to be replacing him and all things being equal we want to stay at Sheffield until the end of the season."
