Blades want to keep Egan

SHEFFIELD UNITED want to keep Sunderland's Irish star John Egan on loan until the end of the season.

Egan (19) has made just one appearance for the Blades since moving on loan from Sunderland last month and that loan deal is due to expire next week, but Blades boss Danny Wilson wants to see it extended.

"I don't know what will happen with regards to staying here," Egan said. "What I do know is that I'm learning all the time and training with the first team squad. Working with players like Neill Collins is invaluable experience."
