Despite only being on loan, so much more was expected from United fans from Hammond.
The former Southampton and Leicester captain was seen as a brilliant piece of business by manager Nigel Adkins when he signed him up until the end of the season, but he has been nowhere near what was expected.
Hammond is seen as someone with Premier League experience and often the first name on the team sheet, however he has looked sluggish in terms of fitness and often picks up yellow cards for clumsy and reckless challenges.
He has scored only one goal for the Blades, and has contributed little in terms of assists either. If Hammond was hoping for a permanent move in the summer, on current form, he may have to look elsewhere.
