Barnsley Loan For Matty James
- The central midfielder has made 100 appearances for the Foxes in all competitions
- James could potentially be involved in Barnsley’s Championship clash with Rotherham United on Saturday
Leicester City midfielder Matty James has joined Championship outfit Barnsley on loan until the end of the 2016/17 season.
The 25-year-old heads to Oakwell Stadium for a third loan spell of his career, having spent two seasons at Preston North End before joining the Foxes from Manchester United in the summer of 2012.
James played a major role in helping City gain promotion to the Premier League and made 29 appearances during the 2014/15 campaign, before picking up a knee injury in May 2015 that kept him out of first team action throughout the following season.

James will now link up with a Barnsley side that currently sit eighth in the Championship table, just four points off the play-offs.
Should he be registered in time, James could make his debut for Paul Heckingbottom’s men against Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon.
