In an official statement on Thursday lunchtime, Newcastle United have confirmed that Ivan Toney has gone out on loan again.

The 20 year old striker has gone back to Barnsley where he spent time earlier this season before being recalled due to injuries.

Ivan Toney played the first half at Brighton last night in a 1-1 draw for the Newcastle United Under 21s and now will rejoin Barnsley until the end of the season.

The young striker last featured in the first team as a late sub in the 3-3 draw with Manchester United, before picking up an ankle injury in training.

The emergency loan transfer window ends at 5pm today, so we wait to see whether Freddie Woodman or anybody else also goes out on loan to a lower league club.

Newcastle United Official Statement


Newcastle United striker Ivan Toney has rejoined League One side Barnsley on loan until Sunday, 8th May.

The highy-rated 20-year-old spent time on loan at Oakwell earlier this season, scoring twice in eight appearances.

And having recovered from an ankle injury, he will head back out to the Tykes for the remainder of their league season.

Barnsley are currently sixth in the table and Toney will hope to aid their promotion push, starting on Friday as they entertain Scunthorpe United.’
