Newcastle striker has loan period extended
Newcastle striker Ivan Toney has had his loan at Barnsley extended and will now stay there at least until 9 January 2016.
Bought from Northampton Town in the summer, the striker made his Newcastle debut as a substitute in the League Cup against his old club.
Whilst his one Premier League appearance so far came when he once again came off the bench, this time during the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at St James Park.
After showing good form for the Under 21s and scoring a few goals, Newcastle allowed him to go out to League One to help him progress with regular football at a higher level.
Ivan Toney scored his first goal for Barnsley at the weekend as he helped them reach the Northern Area Final of The Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, also scoring one of the spot-locks in the successful penalty shoot-out against Wigan.
