Barnsley have made a late foray into the loan market on deadline day with the capture of German midfielder Mike Steven Bahre.
The 23 year old has arrived until the end of the season from head coach Daniel Stendel's former side Hannover, with two of his three first team appearances for the first team coming during Stendel's time in charge.
Described as a "ball playing midfielder who can play anyway across the middle of the park" Bahre has spent most of his career so far with Hannover's second string, (10 goals in 44 appearances) plus a loan spell at Hallescher FC in Germany.
His two appearances under Stendel saw Bahre come on in the 75th minutes of a 1-0 win over Karlsruhe in September 2016 and a 2-1 defeat to Union Berlin in October 2016.
Bahre's initial deal sees him spend the rest of the 2018-2019 season on loan at Oakwell with a view to a permanent move in the summer.
Chief Executive Gauthier Ganaye told the club website:
"We’re really pleased to have signed Mike. He’s a player that Daniel mentioned instantly to us when he arrived at the club, so we know how highly he is regarded and the quality he has got. Mike has chosen to join us and that’s what we need, players who want to be part of this club and help us to achieve our goals. It’s a great way to end the window!”
