Barnsley have Whaley of a time

Barnsley have Whaley of a time

Barnsley have captured the signature of Simon Whaley on a month's loan from Championship rivals, Preston North End.

Reds boss Simon Davey was delighted to land the 23-year-old for a month:

He told the club's official website:

'Simon is someone we have monitored and admired for a while.

'An opportunity like this was too good to pass up when we knew he was available.'

The former Bury man fell down the pecking order at Deepdale, and Davey was quick to snap up his signature:

'Simon is a player who can operate on both wings and can slot in perfectly to any of the systems we are playing at this moment in time.'

Whaley will most likely be in tomorrow's squad to face Sheff Utd at Oakwell.
