The striker, who agreed a move to the Broadfield for the rest of the term last month, has gone back to Huddersfield without making a single appearance for the Red Devils because of a knee problem.

Barker told the club website: "Jimmy came down last week to train with the lads but the injury flared up again and after talking to Huddersfield and Jimmy we felt it best that he went back."

Barker may go back into the loan market in order to bolster his attack for the League One run-in.

He added: "We have a very busy schedule ahead of us even if we don't have any more problems with postponements.

"I am extremely happy with the squad we have but we are slightly light on numbers so bringing in another player is something we might have to consider."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
