Barnsley have drafted in England international goalkeeper Jack Butland on loan from Stoke as cover for the injured Luke Steele.

Steele sustained a back injury in training this week and will undergo a scan to determine the full extent of the problem, so B utland will make his debut for the club at Leicester on Saturday.

Butland, who made his senior England debut against Italy last year, has been signed on an emergency 93-day loan.

The 20-year-old, who started his career at Birmingham, was signed by Stoke for a reported £3.5million in January.

Wigan veteran Mike Pollitt recently made three first-team appearances for Barnsley while on loan, but returned to his parent club.
