Cotterill joins Barnsley after release by Swansea
Friday 17 February 2012
Barnsley have completed the signing of winger David Cotterill until the end of the season. The 24-year-old Wales international, released by Swansea last month, is expected to go straight into Keith Hill's squad for tomorrow's home game with Portsmouth.
Cotterill, who joined Swansea in January 2010 from Sheffield United for a then club record fee of £600,000, has not appeared for Brendan Rodgers' side this season.
Cotterill began his career at Bristol City before moving to Wigan Athletic in a £2m deal in August 2006.
He made only 18 Premier League appearances in 18 months for Wigan before joining Sheffield United in July 2008 after an initial loan spell at Bramall Lane.
Meanwhile, Leeds' on-loan central midfielder Fabian Delph has headed back to his parent club, Aston Villa, for treatment on an ankle injury.
The 20-year-old, who returned to Elland Road last month, sustained the injury in the midweek defeat at Coventry City.
