Young goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith has joined Barnsley on a youth loan from the Owls.

The England U20 international has moved to Oakwell on the final day of the emergency loan window.

Wildsmith has been named on the bench for Wednesday three times this season.

A previous loan move took him to Alfreton Town in the Conference last season where he made two appearances.

Youth loans allow the player to train with their parent club and appear in non-senior squad matches while on loan elsewhere.
