Barnsley look into their legal options after Iain Hume suffered a fractured skull and internal bleeding in Saturday's defeat by Sheffield United.

Hume is in a "stable condition" in a high dependency unit in hospital after undergoing surgery on a fractured skull following a challenge by Chris Morgan.

"The club may be seeking legal advice on the matter," Reds manager Simon Davey told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"We've ended up with a life-threatening injury and a player in a hospital bed."

A Blades statement read: "Sheffield United are saddened and concerned to hear that Iain Hume is being monitored in a high dependency unit and wish him a speedy and full recovery."
