Midweek Sport - - SPORTS -

BARNS­LEY have signed Tot­ten­ham’s 23-year-old goal­keeper David But­ton on an emer­gency loan un­til April 15.

The Tykes are with­out back-up keeper David Preece for the rest of the sea­son af­ter he frac­tured a wrist dur­ing the warm-up be­fore the match against Southamp­ton on March 10.

Academy stop­per Lukas Li­dake­vi­cius was on the bench against Read­ing at the week­end, but But­ton’s ar­rival will pro­vide boss Keith Hill with more ex­pe­ri­enced cover for first choice Luke Steele.

Barns­ley will be But­ton’s 11th dif­fer­ent loan club.

He played against the Tykes for Don­caster ear­lier in the sea­son.

The Spurs young­ster has rep­re­sented Eng­land at Un­der-16, U17, U19 and U20 level.
