Manchester United youngster Ryan Tunnicliffe has signed for Barnsley on loan for a 28-day period until March 20th.
Barnsley confirmed the signing from United on BBC Radio Sheffield after midfielder Scott Golbourne was ruled out for the season.
Tunnicliffe has experienced a loan period before when sent out to Peterborough United where he made 26 appearances.
Ryan made his first team debut in the Capital One Cup against Newcastle at Old Trafford, a debut which won his father £10,000 after betting that his son would one day play for Manchester United. His dad, Mick, placed the bet when Ryan was just nine-years of age.
A move to Barnsley for a month will be a fantastic outlet for him, we will follow his progress with great intent and report back on RedMancunian.
Tunnicliffe has been registered in time that he could make his debut away at Bristol City this coming Saturday.
Barnsley Director Don Rowing told the Sheffield Star:
“David’s been waiting for Sir Alex Ferguson to give him permission to get Ryan – and now that’s come through we’ve got him for 28 days, i’m sure he’ll be a very good player; most of these young players at Manchester United are.”
