Sheffield United defender Chris Basham says the Blades can’t get too ahead of themselves despite an impressive return season in the Premier League.

The 32-year-old defender was recently rewarded with a new contract at the club, keeping him at Bramall Lane until the summer of 2022.

Basham says that although the Blades can be happy with a 9th placed Premier League finish last season, the hard work shouldn’t stop there.

The centre back said: “We still need to pinch ourselves that we are Premier League footballers sometimes.

“We’ve had a good taste for it but it’s a very dangerous league so we can’t let ourselves get too high, let ourselves think we’ve done it, because we haven’t – we’re a long way from that.

“The important thing is coming in to next year ready for a very tough, hard season.

“It’s something to look forward to, to prove more people wrong.”
