Barnsley have confirmed that goalkeeper Ben Alnwick has left the club by mutual consent.

The 26-year old joined the Championship side from Tottenham last summer and he went on to make 12 appearances during his debut campaign at Oakwell.

Alnwick, a former England Under-21 international, started his career at Sunderland before moving to Spurs in 2007, although he only managed one Premier League appearance in his five-year stint.

During his time at White Hart Lane, he had no fewer than seven different loan spells until he was eventually released and signed on a two-year deal by the Tykes.

David Flitcroft has brought in goalkeepers Mike Pollitt and Christian Dibble during this transfer window, leaving Alnwick surplus to requirements and now free to find a new club.
