Sheffield United have dismissed Slavisa Jokanovic and appointed Paul Heckingbottom’s as manager until the end of the 2025-26 season.

Jokanovic signed a three-year deal to take over at Bramall Lane following the Blades’ relegation to the Championship, but has departed only six months into his reign with the club 16th in the second tier.

Heckingbottom, who stepped in as caretaker boss last season following Chris Wilder’s departure, has been installed as boss on a long-term deal.

The former Leeds United, Barnsley and Hibernian manager had been in charge of the South Yorkshire club’s Under-23 side. Stuart McCall will be Heckingbottom’s number two.

The Blades were relegated from the Premier League with a whimper last season, finishing bottom after winning only seven matches.
