JASON Scotland has signed a short-term contract at struggling Championship club Barnsley, just days after being released by Ipswich Town.
Having dropped down the pecking order at the Blues, an agreement was reached between club and player to prematurely cut short the final few months of the 33-year-old striker’s contract at the club.
The former Trinidad and Tobago international has signed a short-term deal at second-from-bottom Barnsley – a side just seven points below Town, with the Yorkshire club having a game in hand.
He said: “I’m looking forward to getting back to playing football. Everyone is really positive here. I’m going to try and bring more goals to this team.”
Meanwhile, the EADT understands that League Two side Northampton Town have made a loan approach for Blues winger Josh Carson.
