Sheffield United release ex-Derby County defender as five exits confirmed



Former Derby County defender Max Lowe is among five players to be released by Sheffield United ahead of their return to the Championship. The Blades have confirmed that ex-Ram Lowe along with Chris Basham, George Baldock, Oliver Norwood and Wes Foderingham will leave the club this summer. The announcement comes as the Blades prepare to revamp their squad following relegation from the Premier League. Their final game of the season is against Spurs on Sunday. United said in a statement: "The Blades can confirm Chris Basham, George Baldock, Oliver Norwood, Wes Foderingham and Max Lowe will leave the club when their contracts expire this summer.

“The aforementioned players will each embark on new chapters in their careers following the conclusion of this campaign, having helped the Blades to success during their spells at Bramall Lane.

“They share a total of nine promotions in their Blades careers and the club see fit to release this news ahead of the end of the campaign to enable them to receive acclaim from Unitedites for their contributions. With the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday being United’s final fixture of the campaign, special acknowledgements will be paid to the five, with further tributes across the club’s digital platforms.

“The five players will depart with our gratitude and appreciation for the contribution they have made to Sheffield United Football Club. Further news with regards to the futures of other current squad members will follow in due course.”

Lowe joined the Blades from Derby in 2020 as part of a double deal that saw Jayden Bogle also move to Bramall Lane for a reported combined fee of £11m.

Injuries have hampered his United spell, although he did have a successful loan at Nottingham Forest where he played 20 league games under Steve Cooper. In total, Lowe just made 43 league appearances.
