MIDFIELDER Nick Montgomery has returned to Sheffield United after his loan spell at Millwall was cut-short by a calf injury.

The 30-year-old, who only signed for the Lions last Tuesday, has been sent back to the League One club to undergo treatment but is unlikely to return to The Den before the end of the season.

Montgomery made two substitute appearances during his brief spell in SE16, totalling just 20 minutes of playing time.

Boss Kenny Jackett told the Southwark News: “It is a disappointment because he’s picked up an injury very, very quickly at the start of his Millwall career.”
