Cresswell available

30 August 2012

Danny Wilson revealed at his weekly press conference that Richard Cresswell has agreed a new role with the Blades and will be available for selection against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The striker, who has not featured competitively this season, has held talks with the Club about a player-coach role and following those discussions, Wilson explained the outcome:

"Richard's contractual circumstances have changed and he is in contention to play at the weekend.

"The lad is a fantastic professional who is desperate to play football, no disrespect to modern footballers, but Cressy is a throw back, he is an old school footballer.

"He offers the younger lads like John (Cofie), Nick (Blackman) and Shaun (Miller) plenty of experience and advice and in terms of coaching he will work primarily with Chris Morgan and John Pemberton."

On Nick Montgomery's situation, Wilson added: "Nothing has changed with Monty as we speak, but hopefully a solution can be agreed.

"We have had a few enquiries for him, but nothing has been concrete as yet so we will have to see how things pan out."
