Kevin Long Joins Reds From Burnley

19 November 2015

Barnsley Football Club is pleased to welcome Championship defender Kevin Long to Oakwell on loan from Burnley.

The former Republic of Ireland youth international has signed on loan for the Reds until December 19th, 2015.

A commanding central-defender, the 25-year-old spoke to the press this morning after sealing his temporary switch to Oakwell from Turf Moor.

"I'm itching to play. I jumped at the opportunity to come out and play. The gaffer here is a genuine guy and I know one or two of the lads here. It's a good fit for me.

"Even if I didn't know anyone here it's still a big club with good training facilities, it was kind of an easy choice."

A determined and committed centre-half, Long has battled his way into Burnley's first-team squad via loans with Accrington, Rochdale and Portsmouth.
