With Billy Sharp, Jack O’Connell and Enda Stevens the three senior players to depart, it leaves 18 established players either under contract or in negotiations over new deals at Bramall Lane.
A host of key players are about to enter the final 12 months of their deals, as things stand, although there are thought to be options in a number of cases which could trigger extensions. We had a look at the status of every senior player at Bramall Lane to see where they’re at going into the summer...

2. George Baldock
Under contract until 2024. Helped United get over the line in the promotion race last season with some consistent displays after returning from injury and is keen to test himself at Premier League level again. Will be amongst the priorities for United to tie down to a new deal soon Photo: George Wood/Getty Images
3. John Fleck
Under contract until 2024. The Scottish international’s 2022/23 season was disrupted by injury but boss Paul Heckingbottom wanted to keep him at Bramall Lane for the new Premier League season and he signed a one-year deal earlier this summer
4. Chris Basham
Under contract until 2024. Taking him to a 10-year stay at Bramall Lane and a well-earned testimonial year. Played understudy to Anel Ahmedhodžić last season but still played his part when called upon Photo: Richard Sellers
