John Cofie: Joins Barnsley on a free

The 20-year-old, who spent time on loan with Sheffield United and Notts County last season before being released from Old Trafford, has agreed a one-year contract.

He told the club's website: "Obviously I'm happy to be here. I've been here for 10 days training and they're a great bunch of lads. It's great being here so far.

"I spoke to the gaffer here and the plans he's got for the club here, I want to be a part of.

"I'm going to get my head down, work hard and when I get the opportunity I'll show what I can do."

Boss David Flitcroft feels Ghana-born Cofie is one for the future.

He said: "I saw him when he was at Burnley as a kid. He's a player of immense potential and immense talent.

"I don't think he'll be ready for the start of the season. There's bags of potential there.

"Once we'd evaluated him over the week's training, the decision to sign him was easy."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
