Another new kit

You can take a look at it HERE.

Some fans have already had their say – and it seems to have gone down pretty well, with one supporter claiming it could even go down as a classic kit.

Derek Geary on Kyle Walker

Former Sheffield United favourite Derek Geary has recalled the rise of Manchester City and England defender Kyle Walker after he helped his country reach the final of a major tournament.

The pair played together in the 2008/09 season and Geary claimed he took the rapid full-back under his wing.

He also believes the rise of Walker, as well as fellow youth academy graduates Harry Maguire and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, is a great selling point for the club’s academy.
