Sinclair Has Loan Cut Short

Barnsley have loss three strikers in the space of a week after Emile Sinclair saw his loan from Peterborough United cut short yesterday and he immediately secured a short move across South Yorkshire to League One promotion hopefuls Doncaster Rovers.

The 25 year old arrived at Oakwell in November after being placed on the transfer list at Peterborough due to an off the field incident.

The Leeds born man, who had hit 13 goals in 47 games for the Posh failed to really find form in his two months at Oakwell and did not manage a single goal in his three appearances, of which only one was a start. His last appearance was a 20-minute run out in the 3-1 home defeat to Blackburn on the 29th December, which cost manager Keith Hill his job.

Now both the player and The Reds decided it was mutually beneficial to cut short the loan and Sinclair immediately joined up with Doncaster who are third in League One.

It means in the space of a week The Reds have lost three strikers with Marcus Tudgay returning to Nottingham Forest after breaking his collarbone, Craig Davies on the verge of a £300,000 switch to Bolton and now Sinclair moving on. It leaves caretaker boss David Flitcroft with only Chris Dagnall and Marlon Harewood as experienced strikers.
