And Addison set for loan until December. Barnsley boss Keith Hill is set to move swiftly to replace former skipper Jason Shackell with a move for Brighton and Hove Albion defender James McNulty. The 26 year old has been in and out of the Brighton side since joining from Stockport in 2009, and spent part of last season and the 2009-2010 campaign on loan at Scunthorpe United where he impressed in six Championship appearances. The former Liverpool and Everton trainee is predominately a left back and will provide competition for former Derby man Jay McEveley. In keeping with the Derby tradition, defender cum midfielder Miles Addison is set to seal a six month loan deal with the Reds tomorrow which will keep him at Oakwell until after the hotly anticipated Yorkshire derby with Leeds United on New Years Eve. Barnsley are believed to have agreed to allow Shackell to seal his £1m move to PridePark as long as 22 year old Addison could switch to South Yorkshire. Director Don Rowing told the Star: “It looks like Miles is going to join us. The deal would be until December, which is great for Barnsley Football Club.”   Jimmy McNulty (Brighton & Hove Albion) information Date of birth Wednesday, 13th February 1985 Height 6ft 0in Place of birth Runcorn, England Weight 12st 1lb International   Position Defender Comments   Squad No. 33 Recent career history by club (1999 onwards) TeamDebutApps (+ sub)GoalsYellowsReds Scunthorpe United 05 Apr 2010 8 (2) 0 1 0 Brighton & Hove Albion 10 Feb 2009 13 (3) 1 3 0 Stockport County 12 Jan 2008 45 (1) 1 3 0 Macclesfield Town 05 Aug 2006 34 (7) 2 4 0 Wrexham 05 Nov 2003 0 (1) 0 1 0 Recent career history by season (1999 onwards) SeasonFirst App.Apps (+ sub)GoalsYellowsReds 2010/2011 07 Aug 2010 6 (1) 0 0 0 2009/2010 06 Oct 2009 10 (4) 0 3 0 2008/2009 09 Aug 2008 37 (0) 2 3 0 2007/2008 11 Aug 2007 29 (7) 1 5 0 2006/2007 05 Aug 2006 18 (1) 1 0 0 2003/2004 05 Nov 2003 0 (1) 0 1 0 Total appearances 100 (+ 14 as sub); Goals 4; Yellow cards 12; Red cards 0
