Sheffield United: Blades make contract offer to young midfielder Ben Whiteman
Sheffield Star, by JAMES SHIELD, Saturday 13 May 2017

Sheffield United plan to offer Ben Whiteman a new contract before loaning him to a League One club next season.

Chris Wilder confirmed talks with the midfielder and his representative have reached an advanced stage after he impressed coaching staff at Bramall Lane during a brief spell with Mansfield Town last term.

“Ben did really well there (at Field Mill) and that didn’t go unnoticed by us,” Wilder said.

“We want to get him tied down and then get him out somewhere in League One. We think that would be great for his development. The same goes for the other young lads here too because we think they’ve got bright futures going forward here with us.”
