Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder has given an abrupt response to whether he would like to see Leeds United join the Blades in the Premier League.

Wilder's side beat Leeds at Elland Road late in the season on their way to clinching an automatic promotion place, at the Whites' expense.

 

He was honoured for his achievements at the LMA Awards last night, and was asked whether he would like to see Leeds in the top flight too.

Wilder showed disinterest in the possibility, with the exchange reported by BBC Sport's Simon Stone.

Sheffield United have secured two promotions in three years, after more than five seasons stuck in League One.

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is attempting to win promotion in his first Championship season, but must negotiate the play-offs.

The Whites are 1-0 up against Derby after the first leg, and would face Aston Villa in the final.
