Sheffield United have sent their best wishes to former striker Luton Shelton after the Jamaican was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

The 32-year-old’s condition was laid bare in a heartbreaking video interview where his wife Bobette admitted “he needs everything”.

The Jamaican government have pledged $30,000 towards Shelton’s medical care as he battles the degenerative condition, which has affected his speech and caused him significant weight loss.

A United spokesperson told The Star: “We have been made aware of Luton’s condition this morning and everyone at the club, including supporters, will want to wish him well.”
