Sheffield United defender reveals his season is over due to…….

Max Lowe has revealed he will miss the rest of the season through injury, leaving Sheffield United short on the left side of defence.

With Rhys Norrington-Davies enduring a stressing hamstring damage at Luton Town prior this month, Yasser Laroucci is the as it were pro within the position for Sunday’s trip to Wolverhampton Drifters.

Lowe uncovered on X, once in the past Twitter, that he has exasperated his lower leg damage, and will not play once more this season.

It was Lowe who replaced Norrington-Davies at Kenilworth Road, but he has not started a game since the defeat at Chelsea on December 16.

Since joining in the summer of 2020, the now-26-year-old has only started 34 league games for the Blades, plus eight substitute appearances. He made 19 Championship starts plus an appearance from the bench, on loan at Nottingham Forest in 2021-22.

Lowe’s Bramall Lane contract is due to expire in June and Chris Wilder has spoken about trying to sign more physically-robust players in the next transfer window with his club best by injury in recent years.

Central defender Auston Trusty has started four games at left-back since Chris Wilder returned as manager in December, and the versatile Ben Osborn can play at left wing-back, though asking either to play the other position would be a push.

The Blades have flitted between a back four and three central defenders in recent weeks, opting for the latter in the last three matches – one won, the other two lost 5-0 at home.

With Norrington-Davies getting back to full fitness after 14 months out with an injury to his other hamstring, Wilder took the decision in January to cancel left-back Luke Thomas’ loan from Leicester City, allowing him to borrow right-sided centre-back Mason Holgate from Everton.

Holgate starts a three-match suspension for a red card against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.
