Barnsley have signed Tottenham goalkeeper David Button on an emergency loan until April 15th.

The Tykes are without back-up custodian David Preece for the rest of the season after he fractured a wrist during the warm-up for the game against Southampton.

Academy stopper Lukas Lidakevicius took up the substitute goalkeeper role at the weekend but Button's arrival will provide Keith Hill with more experienced cover should an injury or suspension occur to Luke Steele.

Remarkably, Barnsley will be Button's 11th different loan club and the 23-year-old has played against his new club whilst on a previous loan with Doncaster earlier this season.

He has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-20 level so arrives at Oakwell with a good pedigree.
