Sheffield United veteran Ollie Norwood has admitted he would prefer to end his career with the Blades.
The 32-year-old has become one of the club's most important players under coach Paul Heckingbottom.
“When I first signed here, on the first day, if you said that I wouldn't have believed it," Norwood said on the Blades' official One of Our Own podcast.
“You have to pinch yourself at times, because of how far we've come and the journey we've been on.
“It's been a rollercoaster – it always is at this place, so I'm told, through the years – and some of the best times of, not just my career but my life have come here. I genuinely mean that. When the day comes to hang the boots up – and unfortunately for some it won't be for a long time yet, hopefully – I'd like to think I could come back here as a fan.
“I genuinely, genuinely mean that. It's been a home for me, it really has, and if you offered me the chance to finish my career here I'd snap your hand off for it, I'll be honest. So that's the affiliation I feel with a club. I always go back to Chris saying that when you go to a football club, you want to leave it in a better state than you found it in and I think when the time comes to leave, hopefully Sheffield United will be in a better place than when I first signed. And all the memories will be part of the history."
