Man United youngster Eckersley joins Barnsley
Barnsley have completed the loan signing of Manchester United defender Adam Eckersley.
The 21-year-old, who progressed through the ranks at Old Trafford, will stay at Oakwell until the end of June.
Eckersley has made one appearance for Manchester United, playing the full 90 minutes in a 4-1 Carling Cup win over Barnet in October 2005.
He has also enjoyed loan spells at Belgian side Royal Antwerp and Danish club Brondby.
The left-back will go straight into Simon Davey's squad for next weekend's home league match against Preston.
