Kieran Makes Tripp To Burnley
But Hill could wrap up Vaz Te deal this week. Ex Barnsley loanee Kieran Trippier will not be returning to Oakwell after it was announced he has sealed a season long loan deal at Championship rivals Burnley. The Manchester City full back enjoyed a 42 game spell with The Reds between February 2010 and May 2011, and there were rumours the England Under 21 international may return to South Yorkshire. That though has been proved false as Trippier is heading to Lancashire for the 2011-2012 season. One player who may be signing on under Keith Hill is trialist Ricardo Vaz Te. The former Bolton striker has impressed in two friendlies with Barnsley, including scoring a stunning free-kick in the 5-1 win over Grimsby on Saturday. 24 year old Portuguese Vaz Te spent last season with Scottish side Hibernian and is again expected to feature for the Reds in tonight’s South Yorkshire derby with SheffieldWednesday at Oakwell with a view to signing a permanent contract. But Hill first of all wants Vaz Te to cut out the unnecessary tricks and flicks. Speaking to www.barnsleyfc.co.uk, gaffer Hill said: Ricardo has all the ability in the world but it is a juggling act with those players. I do like creative players, but can he offer the function I expect from a player for 90 minutes. Can he hold onto the ball rather than making a fed-up flick? That's what I'm deliberating on. He's got all the ability I like, but the back heel for no purpose that doesn't quite come off and then all of a sudden the opposition are attacking you, they don't go down well with me."
