Fleck’s wife Lauren posted a message to her Instagram story with a quote which included the line ‘sometimes change is a great time to press the reset button’.

That led many Blades fans to speculate over Fleck’s future - especially with United on the verge of a big-money move for Genk’s Sander Berge.

But Fleck allayed those fears in a video posted to United’s social media channels in which he said there was ‘no chance’ he was leaving the Lane.
