IPSWICH Town's Saturday opponents Barnsley are tonight considering legal action against Sheffield United skipper Chris Morgan, whose challenge left Tykes striker Iain Hume with a broken skull.

The news emerged as the Football Association decided to take no action against Morgan today.

Hume, 25, was readmitted to hospital on Monday evening, just over two weeks after the incident during the local derby at Oakwell on November 8.

He is expected to leave hospital tomorrow.

A statement from Barnsley said: “The FA's failure to act has let Iain Hume down badly and the only option now remaining is for recourse outside of the normal football processes.”
