The 24-year-old scored one goal in pre-season but has not featured so far this term and it will be a good opportunity for the player to have regular first-team football.

The former Halifax man would have struggled to force his way into the Paul Heckingbottom's plans at Oakwell, with Sam Winnall, Tom Bradshaw, Adam Armstrong, Marley Watkins and Stefan Payne to choose from.

Tuton will link up with fellow Red Kayden Jackson, who has also joined the Mariners on loan for the season earlier this summer.
