Ben Alnwick: The former Tottenham goalkeeper has left Barnsley by mutual consent

Ben Alnwick: The former Tottenham goalkeeper has left Barnsley by mutual consent

The 26-year old joined the Championship side from Tottenham last summer and he went on to make 12 appearances during his debut campaign at Oakwell.

Alnwick, a former England Under-21 international, started his career at Sunderland before moving to Spurs in 2007, although he only managed one Premier League appearance in his five-year stint.

During his time at White Hart Lane, he had no fewer than seven different loan spells until he was eventually released and signed on a two-year deal by the Tykes.

David Flitcroft has brought in goalkeepers Mike Pollitt and Christian Dibble during this transfer window, leaving Alnwick surplus to requirements and now free to find a new club.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
