Rory Hopes For Longer Deal

Rory Delap may have only been a Barnsley player for less than a week but he is hoping his loan move from Stoke could be made permanent in the summer if things continue to go well.
The 36 year old full back, famed for his ability with long throw-ins, joined from Premier League Stoke City on loan on transfer deadline day and he made his debut in the 2-1 victory at Blackpool on Saturday.
The former Republic of Ireland international is out of contract in the summer and he told BBC Radio Sheffield that he would love to remain at Oakwell.
"I'd like to think if I do well enough then there'll be something for me here,"
"I'm out of contract in the summer and I want to keep playing, so I have to prove I can do a job over the next couple of months.
"They've been flying since David (Flitcroft) took over and hopefully they can keep those results going and I'd like to be a part of that.
"This is a great move for me at the moment because I was desperate to get away and play games."
