Sheffield Utd want to keep loan defensive pair

Bryan Robson has confirmed his desire to keep on-loan defensive duo Phil Bardsley and Gary Cahill at Sheffield United.

Manchester United full-back Bardsley and Aston Villa centre-half Cahill have played key roles in the Blades' recent climb up the table, with Robson's side keeping two clean sheets in successive away wins.

Robson said: "Obviously people are going to take notice of them because they're both playing well.

"I'd like to keep them at the club, at least until the end of the season.

"I'll be speaking to both Manchester United and Aston Villa."
