Barnsley have completed the signing of John Rooney, brother of Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney.


The attacking midfielder has signed a deal until the end of the season after leaving American side Orlando City. The 21-year-old agreed terms earlier this month but there has been problems getting clearance from the FA after his switch from America.


But Reds director Don Rowing told the Chronicle that the deal had gone through after the relevant paperwork was received. Rooney could go into the squad for Saturday's clash with Nottingham Forest.
