A number of clubs from Leagues One and Two are said to be eyeing a move for out-of-favour Sheffield United defender Chris Hussey this summer transfer window, reports from HITC Sport claim.
The 28-year-old will have fallen down the pecking order for the fierce left-back position following the addition of Enda Stevens from Portsmouth back in May, and Danny Lafferty seemingly won over manager Chris Wilder half way through last season.
This has meant a trio of League One new boys; Blackpool, Portsmouth and Plymouth are all preparing loan deals to obtain Hussey’s services, as well as relegated League Two outfit Swindon Town.
The former Burton Albion and Coventry City defender joined Sheffield United last summer having become Wilder’s first acquisition, alongside winger Mark Duffy, after being appointed as manager of the Blades.
Chris Hussey has spent the vast majority of his career in the Football League; featuring in just under 100 League Two matches, 58 third-tier outings and ten less in the Championship.
It’s said that all those lining up a swoop for the Bramall Lane outcast are attempting to reinforce their defences this summer, as they ply their trades in differing divisions to last campaign.
