Barnsley boss Keith Hill insists that Scottish international Jay McEveley still has a future at the club.

The 26-year-old has been made available for loan by Hill, and is now down the pecking order at Oakwell.

But Hill says McEveley - who can play left-back or in central defence - may yet have a future with the South Yorkshire outfit.

"I've got a good working relationship with Jay and he understands the situation" Hill told The Sheffield Star.

"This is nothing personal, but we're happy we've got enough cover at left-back. He's still a very active player in our squad.

"We've decided to go with Jim McNulty in that position and he's come in and done really well. I'm honest with all the players and Jay knows the door's not been shut; he's got a chance to potentially go out and get some regular football somewhere else. I'm sure that would do him good.

"Bobby Hassell can play at left-back and so can David Perkins, plus I need to have a look at Luke Potter when he comes back from injury."
