Former Sheffield United defender set to sign new contract at high-flying League Two outfit


Chris Hussey has agreed on a new contract at League Two high-flyers Cheltenham Town as reported by Gloucestershire Live.

The report claims it is thought the defender has agreed on a new deal to keep him at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium until the summer of 2021.

The former Sheffield United, Bury and Coventry City man has put his injury worries behind him to become a highly influential player in Michael Duff’s impressive team at left wing-back.

The thirty-year-old arrived at Cheltenham on a two-year deal in the summer of 2018. He missed the start of his first season through injury but returned to play a crucial role in the club’s climb away from relegation trouble during the second half of the campaign.

A thigh injury sidelined Hussey for the whole of pre-season ahead of the current campaign, but he’s since made fourteen appearances in the Robins tremendous start to the season which currently sees them sitting third in the League Two table.

Cheltenham have also recently tied down right wing-back Sean Long until 2021 and club captain Ben Tozer on a deal until the end of the 2021/22 campaign as Duff continues to build an outstanding unit in Gloucestershire.

Our View

We really like Michael Duff and the exceptional job he is doing at Cheltenham.

The fact that quality players such as Hussey, Long and Tozer are happy to extend their stays speaks volumes about what is going on at the Robins.

This raft of new deals follows similar efforts in the summer which kept some of Duff’s best players in the squad.

A happy camp is usually a successful one, and we fancy the Robins to be in the mix for automatic promotion come May.
