Isgrove Isstaying!

Barnsley have today extended the loan of winger Lloyd Isgrove from Premier League outfit Southampton.

The Welshman has made 11 appearances for The Reds since arriving at Oakwell in October and despite losing each of his first four games, Barnsley have lost only two of the following seven, winning four.

Isgrove’s original loan deal was due to expire this week but now it has been extended to the maximum allowed in a 93-day agreement, meaning he will remain in South Yorkshire until the 23rd January.

As reported last week, strikers Simeon Jackson, Conor Wilkinson and Michael Smith all left Oakwell today. Jackson’s short-term contract expired with him tweeting today Thanks to everyone at @bfc_official All the best for the rest of the season” whilst Wilkinson and Smith have returned to Bolton and Swindon respectively at the end of their loans.
