DANNY Wilson has shelved plans to re-enter the loan market ahead of tomorrow’s visit to Wycombe Wanderers.

Speaking earlier this month, the Sheffield United manager revealed Reading defender Marcus Williams could soon be joined at Bramall Lane by another temporary signing after admitting it was “imperative” that he improved the depth of his squad.

But with Nick Montgomery and Neill Collins both returning to training following injury yesterday, Wilson said: “I’m in no hurry to bring someone in just to sit on the bench.

“We’re not close to anything at the moment.

“There’s no reason to rush out there and do something simply for the sake of it.”

Wilson added: “That doesn’t mean we can’t be aware of what might or might not be possible.

“We are always trying to keep on top of that.”

Montgomery has missed United’s last five games after damaging his ankle at Yeovil Town.

Collins, whose partnership with fellow centre-half Harry Maguire has been a driving force behind their climb to second in the table, hurt his ribs during the 3-0 victory over Colchester.

However, Michael Doyle’s man-of-the-match display against John Ward’s side means Montgomery is by no means certain to regain his place even if he suffers no adverse reaction.

“The fact even our captain is battling for a start says it all,” added Wilson. “It’s pleasing.”
