O'Connor Unavailable For Reds' Forest Trip

New signing Garry O'Connor will be ineligible to play for Barnsley against Nottingham Forest on New Year's Day.

The former Birmingham City striker has agreed to sign a permanent deal when the January transfer window opens after two consecutive successful loan spells at Barnsley from Birmingham.

His loan deal expired a couple of weeks ago as did his permanent contract at Birmingham City, but the Scottish international has been forced to wait until the transfer window opens to sign for the Reds, despite it being a free transfer, because according to F.A. regulations to sign outside the transfer window, he would have had to have been a free agent at the beginning of the season.

Now another blow has been struck to Robins' Reds, as O'Connor will not be registered in time to play at the City Ground when the Reds visit on Saturday.

Players must be registered by 12 noon the day before a game to be eligible to play, but the window is not open until January 1st, which means the earliest that O'Connor could make his debut for the Reds as a permanent player is January 2nd.
