Sheffield United defender Chris Hussey is expected to leave the club in the summer, according to the Sheffield Star.

The 29-year-old’s contract expires in June and the Blades will allow him to leave on a free transfer. He has spent this season on loan at Swindon Town having joined the League Two side in July.

Hussey joined Sheffield United in June 2016 for an undisclosed fee from Bury. He struggled to nail down the left-back spot in his first season and only played 7 games for the Blades. However, he was part of Chris Wilder’s side who won the League One title in the last campaign.

He was allowed to leave Sheffield United in the summer and joined Swindon where he reunited with his former Bury manager David Flitcroft. He has since played 18 times in all competitions for them.

Hussey started his career at Woking before moving to AFC Wimbledon in 2006. After three years there he joined Coventry City in 2010 and played for the Sky Blues in the Championship before they were relegated in 2012.

He then had a short spell at Burton Albion before he signed for Bury in March 2014, initially on loan before it was made permanent in the summer. He helped the Shakers get promoted to League One in his first full season.

Hussey is an experienced Football League defender and although his time at Sheffield United has not worked out, he will still be a man in demand in the summer.
