Tonge loan move to Barnsley

Tonge loan move to Barnsley

Stoke`s Michael Tonge has moved to Npower Championship side Barnsley on loan until the end of the season.

The midfielder has moved back to Yorkshire on loan to play first team football as he has been frozen out at the Britannia Stadium, having only made 12 appearances for the club since 2008.

The 28-year-old has only made one appearance this season for the Potteries club; the 1-0 Europa League play-off win over F.C. Thun.

The writing was on the wall for Tonge after he was omitted from Stoke`s 25-man Premier League squad and their 23-man Europa League squad, and has had to settle for a number of reserve side outings.

The Manchester born player could make his Tykes debut on Tuesday night against Stoke`s Budweiser F.A. Cup fourth round opponents Derby County.

Michael Tonge was brought from Yorkshire side Sheffield United for £2 million at the end of the 2008 summer transfer window. Tonge has had two loan spells at Preston North End and one at Derby County during his spell at the Potters.

Tonge joins Tom Soares (Hibernian) and Danny Pugh (Leeds) on moving on from the Britannia Stadium in this transfer window, and if rumours are true a number of other individuals could be following suit.
