DANNY Wilson could allow more players to leave Sheffield United on loan following Matthew Harriott’s move to Alfreton.

Wilson, the United manager, has allowed the midfielder to join the Blue Square Conference outfit for a month as part of a project designed to further the development of youngsters at Bramall Lane.

“The lads learn a lot from being involved in an environment where people are playing for points,” Wilson, who recently dispatched Jordan Chapell to Burton Albion, said.

“It really does bring them on and they benefit so much from it.

“Wherever possible, it’s something we would look to do if they’re not involved every single week with us at the moment.”

Harriott, aged 20, is expected to feature for Nicky Law’s 16th-placed side when they visit Woking this weekend.

United have granted him permission to play during the forthcoming FA Trophy tie with Kidderminster Harriers, but he will not be eligible when Alfreton host Leyton Orient or Gloucester in the second round of the FA Cup.

The South Yorkshire club face Port Vale at the same stage of the competition on December 1.
