Sheffield United take Mark Bunn on loan from Blackburn Rovers

Sheffield United have moved quickly to find cover for goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, who is awaiting the outcome of a failed drugs test. The Blades have signed Blackburn Rovers Mark Bunn on one months loan.

Kenny has been suspended by United after a urine sample that he provided after the play off semi final game against Preston proved positive for the banned stimulant Ephedrine.

The player must wait for a FA disciplinary inquiry to decide what punishment he will receive. As the drug can allegedly be found in some cold and flu medicines it does not carry an automatic two year ban, although in some cases in Rugby the full sentence has been applied.
