IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR KEVIN
NEW loan signing Kevin Long is excited to get on the pitch for Barnsley after agreeing a short-term deal from Championship outfit Burnley.
The 25-year-old defender put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him at Oakwell until December 19, as the Tykes seek to move away from the foot of the table.
“I’m itching to play,” he said. “I jumped at the opportunity.
“The gaffer here is a genuine guy and I know one or two of the lads. It’s a good fit for me.
“Even if I didn’t know anyone here it’s still a big club with good training facilities, it was kind of an easy choice.”
