Sheffield United are in the hunt for a new left-back following the departure of Jordan Stewart to Greek club Skoda Xanthi.

Stewart, who arrived at Bramall Lane from Derby last September in a swap deal involving Lee Hendrie, has left by mutual consent.

United manager Kevin Blackwell said: "Jordan was a 100% trier and I wish him well in this new part of his career. But his departure opens up possibilities for us and I'm considering options to provide competition and depth in the left-back position."

Stewart, 28, made 23 appearances for the Blades last season with 15 of those in Blackwell's starting line-up.
