Stoke loanee Delap open to permanent Barnsley deal

Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap is open to turning his loan spell at Championship Barnsley into a permanent deal. The 36-year-old former Republic of Ireland international has made just one appearance for the Potters this season.

"I'd like to think if I do well enough then there'll be something for me here," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I'm out of contract in the summer and I want to keep playing, so I have to prove I can do a job over the next couple of months.

"They've been flying since David (Flitcroft) took over and hopefully they can keep those results going and I'd like to be a part of that.

"This is a great move for me at the moment because I was desperate to get away and play games."
