Millwall boss swoops for Sheffield United midfielder

KENNY Jackett has signed Sheffield United midfielder Nick Montgomery on loan until the end of the season.

The Blades stalwart has made 352 appearances in a 12-year career at Bramall Lane, however he has been used sparingly this season by boss Danny Wilson having only made 14 starts in the league.

Montgomery will provide welcome cover for Millwall in their final nine games of the season with midfield ace Liam Trotter ruled out for another fortnight at least due to a recurring thigh problem.

Montgomery is likely to go straight into the squad for the Lions' crucial six-pointer against Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday.
