Sheffield United’s relegation from the Premier League seems inevitable and they have to plan for the next season. However, Wilder says the necessary talks about the future have not taken place by now.

Asked if he will be at the club next season, Wilder replied

: "I don't know. We always plan short, medium and long term, but that plan is determined by other people than me.

"I've not had those conversations. I think they should be happening, but they're not happening."

Wilder led the club to two promotions in three years since taking charge at Sheffield in 2016 but this season they need a miracle to stay up.

Yet he says he would love to remain at the club and try to lead the club back to the Premier League, but he can only do that if the club 'sticks to the plan'.

"The plan as always was to leave a legacy, change things off the pitch, which need changing, and stick with the players we've invested in and add a couple and try to bounce back - simple as that."
