Sheffield United's teenage goalkeeper George Long has signed an extended contract which keeps him at Bramall Lane until 2016.
Long, 18, has made four first-team appearances this season and has been on the bench as back-up for Danny Wilson's side in every other fixture.
"We're delighted that George Long has committed his future to the club for the next few years, which means we keep a fantastic prospect, who has a great future ahead of him," Wilson told the club's official website.
"It's now down to him to keep working hard on the training pitch and learn from Steve Simonsen and Paul Crichton."
Long, who progressed through the club's academy, has represented England at junior level and played for the Blades' under-18s side that reached the Youth Cup final last season.
