Midfield options

26 September 2013

David Weir is confident he now has a good variation of options in midfield, many of whom complement others around them.

After seeing Kevin McDonald join Wolves in August, Weir has recruited Jose Baxter and Florent Cuvelier on permanent deals and most recently added Ryan Hall on an initial one-month loan.

The Gaffer said: "We have added a lot of players in the midfield area after losing Kevin.

"The types of player we have recruited, coupled with time to settle in, will hopefully see the quality we now have shine through and propel us up the table."

Meanwhile, Weir has revealed it is a possibility that players may move out on-loan in the coming weeks if they aren't figuring regularly in his matchday plans.

He added: "There is a chance players that aren't contributing here might move out on-loan but that really is down to the individual concerned.

"We have got two youngsters out on-loan at the moment (Aaron Barry and Elliott Whitehouse) and playing regularly on a Saturday afternoon is a massive plus to their development.

"Any move must be right for all parties, in particular the player themselves and Sheffield United as a club. Budgets are tight, squads are getting lower in numbers and there has to be a point where you sit down and work with what you have available."
