Carl Dickinson, the Stoke City loan left-back has played 27 times this season for the Reds, but was forced off against Crystal Palace due to a knee cartilage tear.

Exactly how Stoke boss Tony Pulis views next season's situation is not clear, he may be a further gem who will sparkle in the future at the Britannia Stadium. But if Barnsley do harbour an ambition to improve yet further, this lad has to be worth consideration and a decent contract.

Speaking recently to the local press, Dickinson said:

"It's been brilliant for me playing football every week

"I haven't a clue what the future holds, but I've got two years left on my Stoke contract after this season. All I can do is get my head down and come back as fit as possible next season."

In the meantime, thanks for some excellent memories this season Carl. Especially the "Gladiatorial" entrance you gave before every kick-off to rouse the Ponty End support. We lapped it up.

Perhaps though, the following clip endeared you most to the Oakwell faithful.

We need players of Dicko's passion, determination and quality in our side. A real professional footballer. Sign him up Robins! And get Shotton while you're at it!

Not a chance of getting Shotton. Stoke rate him very highly. As for Dickop his future lies in the championship, he will cost around £500,000
