Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is happy for Andy Reid to extend his loan at Sheffield United.

Bruce has agreed to extend Reid's initial month-long loan spell at Sheffield United.

He said: "Andy needs games, so I think the most sensible thing to do is to let him get some games under his belt and see where we are in six weeks time.

"I would expect him to extend his loan. If Gary (Speed, Blades boss) wants him then he can stay there."
