The 24-year-old says that he is delighted to be tied to the club until July 2004 after joining them from Manchester City last year.
"I'm glad it has been sorted out - it has taken long enough," he declared. "Now I just want to get on with my football on the pitch."
Brown has become a fixture in the United midfield during recent months, and has recently formed a very promising partnership with 18-year-old Michael Tonge.
The news will come as a major boost to Blades boss Neil Warnock (pictured) as the United fate of Brown's midfield team-mate Paul Devlin still hangs in the balance.
