Barnsley have secured the services of Preston winger Simon Whaley on loan.

The out-of-favour 23-year-old has moved to Oakwell for an initial one-month spell.

Tykes boss Simon Davey is confident he will quickly adapt to his new surroundings.

He told the club's official website: "Simon is someone we have monitored and admired for a while.

"(First-team coach) Kelham (O'Hanlon) and (assistant manager) Ryan (Kidd) both spent time with him at Bury before his move to Preston and spoke very, very highly of him."

"An opportunity like this was too good to pass up when we knew he was available.

"Simon is a player who can operate on both wings and can slot in perfectly to any of the systems we are playing at this moment in time."
