In a statement on the club's official website, United manager Chris Wilder said: "Both new contracts are fully deserved, they have been outstanding in their respective areas of the pitch.

"Billy is a natural goalscorer for us, we are delighted we have negotiated so that he can extend his period with the club. I would imagine he is looking forward to more successful times, he looks after himself and has that drive and desire to keep pushing on. The group has evolved and improved in my time here and he has done likewise.

"Enda has been outstanding since he came in. The way he plays the game, he has been a very important part of our progress in the last 18 months. I've always been a big fan of his. He has taken to Championship football really well and kicked on, which has resulted in him getting in the Republic of Ireland national squad.
