Reds sign Mifsud on loan

Barnsley have completed the signing of Maltese international striker Michael Mifsud on loan from Coventry City.

The 27-year-old joins up with fellow Malta colleague, Daniel Bogdanovic, who signed for the Tykes last week.

Known as the 'Mosquito', Mifsud told barnsleyfc.co.uk:

'Barnsley showed non- stop commitment to getting me to join them, including getting Heinz Muller to ring me night and day. I have also spent two days at the club talking to Simon Davey and Don Rowing and looking at the facilities. I had the chance to join other Championship clubs and had strong La Liga interest, but the important thing is to get the chance to play in a direct attacking role.'

The 27-year-old joins up with fellow Malta colleague, Daniel Bogdanovic, who signed for the Tykes last week.

'I must say that the signing of Daniel Bogdanovic was influential, a very clever ploy indeed.I look forward to playing with my Malta strike partner and getting the chance to play with Heinz again.I was close to signing a permanent deal, but I just needed more time to think it through and time was in short supply. I can't wait to get playing and help the team move forward.'

Michael will in no doubt go straight into the starting line-up against the Owls tomorrow.
