Veteran goalkeeper Danny Coyne has extended his contract with Sheffield United until the end of January.

Coyne: Staying at Bramall Lane

The 39-year-old, who was capped by Wales on 16 occasions, joined the Blades last month to provide cover for highly-rated shot-stopper George Long after Mark Howard was ruled out for three months with a thigh injury.

Coyne has been an unused substitute in every game since he joined and is expected to continue to provide back-up for Long.
