The 24-year-old has ended weeks of speculation by signing a two-year extension to his contract, tying him to Bramall Lane until June 2006.
Montgomery was put on the transfer list in the summer, but has reacted superbly, starring for The Blades in their push for promotion.
"I am absolutely delighted that Nick has decided that his future lies with us," said manager Neil Warnock.
"He has played a major part in what we have achieved so far this season, as he has in previous ones.
"Although he knows that competition for places will continue to be tough, he is willing to accept the challenge and I'm sure fans who recognise Nick's consistent efforts for us will be equally pleased that he's staying."
