Veteran goalkeeper Ian Bennett has signed a new one-year deal with Sheffield United.
The extension means the 37-year-old will continue to provide back-up to first-choice Blades keeper Paddy Kenny.
Bramall Lane boss Ian Blackwell has been linked with a number of alternatives over the summer, but has elected to keep faith with the former Birmingham shot-stopper.
Bennett told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased to be staying and I aim to provide real competition for Paddy as well as back-up because I felt that I did well last year when I came in."
Blackwell added: "Benno is a top professional who is very reliable and did ever so well when he came in for several important games last season such as those with Leicester and Stoke."
And the Blades have signed 15-year-old midfielder Kingsley Williams.
The youngster, released by Oldham three years ago, impressed Bramall Lane scouts during a recent tournament in Valencia.
Williams, who had a brief trial spell with the club as a 10-year-old, has been training with Provision, a second-chance academy, with an emphasis on fitness and physical development.
