Barnsley boss David Flitcroft is continuing his search for a new loan left-back.

Flitcroft is keen to find cover for that position following the sale of Scott Golbourne to Wolves. Tom Kennedy is currently holding down that role, with Reuben Noble-Lazarus also capable of playing as a full-back/wing-back if needed.

Scott Wiseman could also potentially play in that position, but he has been playing at right-back in the Reds’ last few matches.

If the Reds do sign another loan player then that will take the club’s quota up to six so far this season.

Keeper Jack Butland (Stoke), midfielder David Fox (Norwich), defender Peter Ramage (Palace) and striker Marcus Pedersen (Vitesse Arnhem) have all been recruited. But centre-back Ramage has been ruled out for approximately two months with a thorn thigh muscle and Lewin Nyatanga has yet to play a league game this term because of a knee complaint.

The Reds are currently bottom of the Championship with just five points and return to league action on Saturday at home to Middlesbrough.

It’s no secret the struggling South Yorkshire are in desperate need of some points to haul themselves of the foot of the table.

However, they have won just one of their six home games this season, with the solitary league victory having come against Huddersfield Town at the end of August.
