Sheffield United forward Courtney Sweetman-Kirk has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.
The 30-year-old Leicester-born attacker joined The Blades on a free transfer in October and the player went on to net eight goals for the club in all competitions.
With head coach Neil Redfearn continuing to build his squad for next season, it has today been confirmed that Sweetman-Kirk has signed a new deal with Sheffield United for next season. The Blades announced the news via an official club press release this afternoon.
Speaking after signing her new deal, Sweetman-Kirk said “The season we had last year, it was unfortunate the way it ended because we wanted to end higher, but I think you saw as we went on what we were doing with Redders and the process that we were getting there.
“I love the atmosphere of the club and the players we’re signing is important and for me to work
under Redders, that’s massive for me.”
Sweetman-Kirk’s new contract comes just 24 hours after Sheffield United boss Redfearn completed his second signing of the summer. The Blades have secured the services of former England international forward Jess Clarke from Liverpool. Sweetman-Kirk and Clarke were in the same Liverpool side for two seasons between 2018 and 2020 and couple could pair up in Sheffield United’s attack next season.
