The manager of Barnsley, David Flitcroft, has said that he isn’t planning to place Dale Jennings on loan.
Jennings who is just 20 years of age at the moment had signed for Barnsley during the pre-season transfer window. The Tykes had secured his services after paying a transfer fee of 250 thousand Pounds to his previous club Bayern Munich.
Jennings didn’t manage to make a good start to his Barnsley career. He was given the opportunity to play his first game for the club against Wigan Athletic in August, but, he couldn’t spend that much time on the pitch in that game as he was shown a red card just 5 minutes after his arrival.
After that red card incident, Jennings has featured for Barnsley just 4 times and hasn’t been able to make his mark.
Talking to the reporters about Jennings a couple of days back, Flitcroft said, “Dale hasn’t progressed as fast as we had expected him to, but, still, we don’t have any plans of placing him on loan. There have been a lot of effort being put in by the coaches to develop Dale and hopefully, he will start giving his best for the team soon.”
But, there is one guy in the Barnsley squad whom Flitcroft is thinking to loan out. It’s the young left winger Reuben Noble-Lazarus.
Lazarus had played his first match for the first team of Barnsley 5 years back in 2008 when he was just 15 years old. But, he hasn’t got that many playing opportunities since then. Even in the ongoing season, he has been included in the starting XI of Barnsley just a couple of times.
Talking about Lazarus, Flitcroft said, “If we manage to find out the right club for Reuben and place him there, it will be fantastic for him.”
