Barnsley sign former Newcastle United midfielder Dennis Knight

Barnsley have signed former Newcastle United youth team midfielder Dennis Knight on a contract until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old was released by the Magpies earlier this year without making a senior appearance.

Knight spent time on trial with League One strugglers Hartlepool in February, but did not agree a contract.

He will go straight into the squad for Saturday's south Yorkshire derby against Sheffield Wednesday.
