We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United.

Redfearn on Morison 

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn says that Steve Morison's hip injury is not a serious one, after he limped off against Bournemouth.

Morison had to be replaced just after the hour mark during Leeds' 1-0 victory over the Cherries, but Redfearn believes he will be fit for their next fixture. 

“He just had a slight strain in his hip,” Redfearn told the Yorkshire Evening Post. “We got an extra 20 minutes out of him which we might not have got otherwise and I kept him on because he was important to us.

“It hasn’t done any further damage. He could do with a rest but it’s a minor problem rather than anything serious.”

Lees wants Loovens stay

Sheffield Wednesday defender Tom Lees has urged the club to sort out Glenn Loovens' future as soon as possible. 

Loovens has just six months remaining on his contract at Hillsborough and Lees believes that it is a no-brainer to offer him an extension to this deal. 

“It’d be a loss if we didn’t tie him down so for me, it’s a straight-forward thing to do," he said to the Sheffield Telegraph.

“We’ll just have to see what happens. Anyone going into the last six months of their contract will want to know what is going on for a bit of security, to put their mind at rest."

Pochettino on Blades

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was impressed by the quality of Sheffield United during last night's League Cup tie. 

The Blades may not have been able to stop Spurs claiming a 1-0 first-leg advantage, but they did prove just how dangerous they can be and Pochettino was complimentary towards how well they played after the match. 

“It was a good test in the first game and now we realise the level Sheffield United are at and that they deserve to be in the semi-final," he said to Tottenham's official site
