Reward for Gradual Progression

The 21-year-old Welsh international, who was born in Saudi Arabia, has been rewarded for his gradual progression and impressive development through the ranks.

Norrington-Davies has spent the past three seasons out on loan. He first joined Barrow on loan during the 2018/19 season, making 28 appearances for the now League Two side.

As a result of his displays, the Welshmen then made the jump up to League One, joining Rochdale on a season-long loan. While his season was cut short due to the Coronavirus pandemic, he made 34 appearances in all competitions, scoring just the once.

The 21-year-old continued his rise up the pyramid, joining Luton Town on a season-long loan before the start of this season.

Norrington-Davies will now be hoping that he can continue to impress for the Hatters during the rest of the season. Impressive displays may earn him a starting berth when he returns to Bramall Lane next year.

What Was Said?

Speaking about his new deal to the official Sheffield United website, the young defender said: “It’s been a long time coming, but I’m over the moon to commit my future to the Blades.

“I’m glad to be rewarded having gone out on-loan into the Championship this season and play at senior level for Wales too. My long-term focus is coming back to Bramall Lane and playing for Sheffield United.

“But the standard is good in the second tier, I’m enjoying my football in what has been a hectic few months and to play plenty of games has been fantastic. There is definitely more to come from me and I’m determined to keep improving this season.

“The senior call up and winning my first cap for Wales came sooner than expected but it was a proud moment for myself and my family.”
