Derby target Ryan Shotton has joined Barnsley from Stoke City on a three-month emergency loan. A product of the Stoke academy, Shotton’s signing for Barnsley is a blow to Nigel Clough who was eager to sign the full back as cover for current right back Paul Connolly. He is likely to concentrate his efforts on to signing Javan Vidal from Manchester City, though the youngster is away on under-20 international duty, leaving the Rams boss with another problem to navigate.
