Barnsley have swooped to sign Jamie Cureton on a three-month loan deal from Championship rivals Norwich City.

Cureton has struggled for first-team football at Carrow Road this season and has started only three League games for the Canaries.

He recently asked Norwich boss Glenn Roeder for a loan move and he has now accepted a temporary switch to Oakwell.

Following the horrific injury suffered by Iain Hume, Barnsley chief Simon Davey had been looking to increase his attacking options before the close of the loan window.

Fantastic record

"We have lost Iain and our thoughts are with him, but we need to ensure we have the firepower to maintain our excellent run," Davey told the club's official website.

"Jamie is a player I have admired for a long time and has a fantastic goalscoring record. He is another piece in the jigsaw here.

"He is a goalscorer and is proven at this level and if he gets the opportunity then he will put it into the back of the net.

"We are on a fantastic run at the moment and now is the right time to strengthen. Having spoken with his representatives and to Jamie we know that he wanted to come here. We wanted Jamie and we have signed him".
