Sheffield United defender Chris Hussey looks set to depart the club in the summer, with a number of clubs interested in securing his services.

The left back’s contract expires in the summer, and he will be free to leave the Blades, according to the Sheffield Star. 

Hussey joined the Blades at the start of their championship winning season in League One from Bury but injury restricted him to just seven appearances in a United shirt.

He has spent time on loan at Swindon Town this season, but more injury problems have tarnished his campaign and the curtain was closed on his season just 18 appearances in.

It is understood that Cheltenham Town are keeping tabs on the full back, and Gary Johnson see’s him as an ideal replacement for outgoing Jordan Cranston.

The Blades’ release and retained list is still yet to be announced, but it is certain that Hussey will be free to find another club in order to gain first team football next season.

There is no possibility of Hussey’s stay at Swindon being turned into a more permanent arrangement.

The 29-year-old was fined and suspended by the FA after getting involved in an altercation with a supporter last moth.

The incident was enough for Swindon to decide not to sign the defender on a free transfer, despite him impressing in his few appearances.

Cheltenham appear to be in pole position to land Hussey’s signature, however it remains unclear as to where the former Coventry and Wimbledon defender will end up come the start of the season.
