Cheltenham Town have signed Sheffield United defender Chris Hussey, as confirmed by their official club website.
The 29-year-old left-back has joined the League Two club on a free transfer after being told by Sheffield United he can leave at the expiry of his contract. He has penned a two-year deal with Cheltenham.
Hussey had fallen down the pecking order at Sheffield United and spent this season on loan in League Two with Swindon Town. He played 20 times for the Robins.
He joined Sheffield United in the summer of 2016 but struggled to nail down a regular first-team spot at Bramall Lane. Hussey was part of Chris Wilder’s League One title winning squad of 2017, but he only played 7 games in the league.
Hussey is an experienced Football League left-back and is a decent signing for Cheltenham. He started his career at Woking before moving to AFC Wimbledon in 2006. He played 75 games for them in non-league before being snapped up by Coventry City in 2010.
He played for the Sky Blues in the Championship before returning to Wimbledon in 2013. He then went onto have spells at Burton Albion and Bury before moving to Sheffield United in 2016.
Cheltenham Town fans will be satisfied with the signing of Chris Hussey but their main concern this summer is trying to hold onto their top scorer, Mohamed Eisa, who will be a man in demand.
