Sheffield United have been hit by the news that Simon Francis has been struck by glandular fever.

The versatile performer underwent tests this week and now faces a spell on the sidelines with the condition.

Francis arrived at Bramall Lane last season in a £200,000 move from Bradford City and has since proved a capable performer in South Yorkshire.

After failing to make the grade at Notts County, Francis blossomed at The Bantams and went on to make over 50 appearances before his move to The Blades.
