BARNSLEY: Reds set for Rooney deal

Have your say

BARNSLEY are trialing Wayne Rooney’s younger brother John with a view to a permanent move to Oakwell.

The former Macclesfield Town midfielder/forward is a free agent having been released by Orlando City, the Major League Soccer side in the United States.

“He’s got talent,” Reds boss Keith Hill told The Star.

“We’re waiting for international clearance,”

The Reds have had a loan bid for Doncaster Rovers midfielder Martin Woods, once of Rotherham United, rejected.
