Tykes move for Macken

01 November 2007 12:29
Barnsley have bolstered their attacking options by signing experienced striker Jon Macken on loan. The 30-year-old forward has joined the Tykes on loan until the new year from Premier League side Derby County. The former Manchester United, Preston North End, Manchester City and Crystal Palace striker has failed to make an appearance for the Rams since their promotion to the top-flight in the summer. Macken, who cost Manchester City £5million when he joined them from Preston in 2002, has not played since last season's play-off semi-final. He will join up with Rams team-mate and fellow loanee Lewin Nyatanga at Oakwell.
