UPDATED 09:33 16th July 2012

Striker Chris was one of United's major signings in the summer of 2011 after leaving Derby County, for whom his career was interrupted by injury problems. Battling for a regular spot with the Blades, he scored eight goals (including the winner in a play-off semi-final) in 24 starts and did enough for Danny Wilson to offer him an extended deal. Last season saw Chris form a good partnership with Shaun Miller towards the end of 2012, but after losing his place in the New Year, he was loaned to Shrewsbury Town where he impressed. Upon his return to Bramall Lane he was a regular starter, scoring twice against Walsall and Swindon towards the end of the campaign.
