Higginbotham, 22, who has made five appearances for Barnsley since joining them in mid-March, will go straight into Town manager Simon Grayson's plans for Saturday's clash at Walsall.

"We allowed Kallum to go out to get games and time on the pitch at a good level and he has done well during his time at Barnsley, so the loan has totally served its purpose," Grayson told Town's official website.

"He will now return to us with some form and first-team action behind him and I'm keen to see what he can do for us in the run-in to the play-offs.

"Kallum will return to the squad and compete for a starting place. It's a great time to come back in and there's a wonderful opportunity for him to make a real difference and impact.

Higginbotham joined Huddersfield on the final day of the January transfer window from Scottish First Division side Falkirk for an undisclosed fee and made two appearances before his loan switch to Barnsley.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
