Barnsley boss Lee Johnson keen on extending Aidy White stay

Barnsley manager Lee Johnson wants to extend Rotherham loanee Aidy White's stay at the club.

The 24-year-old has been at Oakwell since mid-November after falling out of favour with the Millers and has made five appearances for the struggling Reds.

White is due to stay at Barnsley until January 3 and Johnson believes his side are beginning to see the best of him, though doesn't not think anything will be done before the new year.

He said: “Most clubs will have one eye on this Christmas period and game preparation, you won't see an awful lot of change now as far as loan players going in and out unless the parent club has injuries.

“He has done well, he has been good for us, he gives us that attacking threat and he is getting his lungs back and giving us 90 minutes. I'd like to keep him no doubt.”

White has had a tough start to his Millers career after joining as then-boss Steve Evans' first summer signing following his release from Leeds, where, ironically, Neil Redfearn was boss.

He was substituted at half-time in his debut on the opening game of the season and only made two more starts, playing just twice under Redfearn.

At the time of his move to Oakwell, the Millers boss said: “It is important that the players who haven’t had a clear sight of the first team get regular competitive football.

“If that means going out to get some games then so be it, because if we need to be able to call on them, we know that they have been out playing at a good level. 

“Aidy has done that and we will be keeping a close eye on his progress."
