BARNSLEY youngsters Jordan Clark and Danny Rose are both expected to sign new deals with the club next Monday.

Highly-rated midfielder Clark and talented striker Rose have both been offered one-year extensions to their current Oakwell contracts.

And Hoyland-born Clark can’t wait to put pen to paper and commit his future to the club until 2014 having risen phoenix-like through the junior ranks.

“I’m definitely going to sign my new deal, I love playing for this club,” revealed Clarkto The Star.

“I’m buzzing, to be honest. I’ve been at the this club since I was seven years old and I’d love to be a regular in the first team.

“I’m getting a few opportunities because of injuries at the moment, but hopefully in the next year or so I’ll get to play a bigger role.

“The gaffer [Keith Hill] is always encouraging me and the other younger players; we all seem to be part of his plans, which is great.”

Clark signed his first professional deal in 2011 and his since played six time for the Reds and he continues to strive to be a first-team regular.

And the 18-year-old is delighted Rose and fellow young guns Paul Digby and John Stones have also committed their future to the club.

Rose is expected to sign his deal on Monday like Clark.

Midfielder Digby and defender Stones have already signed new contracts to keep them at the club until 2015.

And Stones’ success this season has seen an international call-up to the England Under-19 side.

“We all want each other to be successful, we kick each other on,” added Clark. “We’re all delighted for Stonesey; he deserves his England call-up because he’s been brilliant for the first team this season.

“The dream is that all four of us will be playing in the first team at the same time at some stage.

“There’s no bad blood between us if someone is doing better. We all support each other and want to play for the club.

“We’ve all been here a long time and we’d love to be first-team regulars, but we’ve also got to be patient and wait for our chances.”
