Yeovil Town

Yeovil have signed Barnsley midfielder Jared Bird on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old could make his Glovers debut in the FA Cup tie with Bradford on Saturday after passing a medical.

Manager Darren Way told the club’s official website: “Jared’s a very good player with all the attributes I feel this club needs. I watched him against Millwall and Tottenham and felt he did very well.

“He’s a young player, but Paul Heckingbottom is someone I trust and he fits with what we’re trying to do here. I look forward to working with him.”
