Delap to be thrown to Barnsley

Delap to be thrown to Barnsley

Barnsley have enquired about the availability of veteran midfielder Rory Delap.

Delap, who has been out most of the season with a shoulder injury is nearing a return to full fitness and the Tykes believe his experience could help them stay in the Championship.

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft looks to take the former Irish international on-loan until the end of the season.

The deal could be finalised as the 36-year-old, who is known for his long throw, looks to play first team football in the twilight of his career.
