Sheffield United have extended striker James Beattie's contract until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old had been on a short-term contract at Bramall Lane since rejoining the club in November, making seven appearances.

Manager Danny Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield: "For him to choose us has meant a massive lift for everybody.

"He's very excited about it, the opportunities for him to go elsewhere have been vast."
