Paddy McCourt: Will be reunited with former team-mate David Flitcroft

The 29-year-old former Rochdale and Celtic player follows Norway international Marcus Pedersen into Oakwell and could go straight into the squad for Saturday's game at Blackburn.

McCourt, capped 13 times by Northern Ireland and who made 90 appearances for Celtic, trained with Hibernian earlier this summer.

But he has reunited with Tykes boss David Flitcroft, who played alongside the Irishman during his playing days at Rochdale and could feature at the weekend, paperwork permitting.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
