Sheffield United: Blades fans gush over Chris Basham’s latest update

Sheffield United: Blades fans gush over Chris Basham’s latest update - Sheffield United News

Sheffield United have shared footage of Chris Basham as Friday marked six years to the day since he joined the Blades. 

After arriving at Bramall Lane from Blackpool on a free transfer, it is fair to say Basham has been a loyal servant to the club.

Indeed, the veteran has stayed with the South Yorkshire outfit from the depths of League One all the way through to the lofty peaks of the Premier League.

The 31-year-old has made 28 appearances in the English top flight for Chris Wilder’s side, making 2.2 tackles per game, averaging 2.2 interceptions, and completing a staggering 4.5 clearances on average (via WhoScored).

His versatility is a real asset, as he has played in a variety of positions across the midfield and the back line.

Wilder’s men have surged to the top end of the table, and are currently tied with Wolverhampton Wanderers on 43 points, only 2 points behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United.
