David Weir says striker Richard Cresswell is set to leave the club, with former club York City leading the chase to sign him.

The 35-year-old has spent almost four years at Bramall Lane netting 30 times in 141 appearances for the club.

Cresswell made just 20 appearances for United last season and he spent a short spell with his first club York City, scoring twice in five games and it looks like York, where he made his senior first team debut in 1996 are leading the chase to sign him but Weir says there are a few clubs interested.

Speaking on Radio Sheffield, Weir said,“I don`t think it is completely done yet but it looks like Richard will be leaving and he goes with our best wishes because he has been a great servant to Sheffield United.

“I think he is potentially on his way back to York but there are a few clubs interested in him, so it will be down to him.”

  • Got to move on after four years. His legs aren’t getting any younger and League Two could be a good ending point to his career at the club where it all started for him.
