David McGoldrick signs new deal with Premier League Sheffield United

Sat, Jun 13 2020

Republic of Ireland international David McGoldrick has signed a new two-year deal with Premier League Sheffield United.

The 32-year-old forward puts pen to paper on a new deal at Bramall Lane having spent the past two years with the club.

McGoldrick asserted himself as one of Ireland’s key attacking outlets during the EURO 2020 qulaifying campaign – scoring a vital leveller against Switzerland at the Aviva Stadium.

The Nottingham born striker joined the Blades ahead of the start of the 2018/19 season following his release from Ipswich Town.

“There's nowhere else I'd rather be spending the next two years, so I'm over the moon to sign this extension and remain a part of this fantastic journey the club is on,” McGoldrick told Sheffield United’s media team.

“As everyone has seen, this is a club that rewards and ties down those players that have contributed heavily to the success it's enjoyed so I'm delighted the gaffer sees me in the same bracket as Billy, Ollie and before that Enda and Flecky.

“I'd like to thank the gaffer and the board for getting this sorted so quickly and smoothly.

“This is a strange and horrible time for everyone, in all walks of life, and it's been tough. But the good news is coming back out of the club and I'm really pleased to have committed my future.

“It all starts again at Villa and that will be a tough first game back. It's going to be different to normal in a lot of respects, but we believe we're 100 per cent ready and as we've proved on numerous occasions that we're a match for anyone.”
