Messrs Simek and Jeffers miss out on the pre-season tour of Holland, as their ankle injuries receive treatment at the renowned FA Medical Centre.

Boss Brian Laws told Radio Sheffield: ‘That work is very controlled but is 9 to 5, which is what they need. We think this will speed their recovery and hopefully when we return they will be ready for the next level.’

Interesting that the ‘Simek To [insert name of Premiership club here]’ rumours continue, even though the 23 year old defender is spending a major part of the close season recuperating from last term’s injury. If he’s worth 4 million to Aston Villa crocked, how much is he worth when fit? We’ve been listening to those rumours for nigh on a year, though.
