Tunnicliffe makes Tykes switch
Barnsley have been boosted by the loan signing of Manchester United's Ryan Tunnicliffe, but Scott Golbourne has been ruled out for the season.
Tykes manager David Flitcroft admitted he was delighted to secure the services of 20-year-old midfielder Tunnicliffe, a player he has been tracking for a number of years.
But the positive news over Tunnicliffe was tempered somewhat by the news on Golbourne, who has undergone surgery on a knee injury.
Golbourne incurred the problem following a high tackle in Saturday's FA Cup win over MK Dons.
"I'll sit down with Scott at some point and we'll through his objectives for pre-season. It's a massive blow because his form has been incredible," Flitcroft told the club's official website.
