The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

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.”
