Barnsley have signed Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez on a one-month loan deal.

The 20-year-old is a product of the Turf Moor youth system and has made 38 appearances for the Clarets since breaking into the senior fold.

He enjoyed a productive loan spell at Stirling Albion in 2007 and Tykes boss Mark Robins is hoping the youngster will have a similar impact at Oakwell.

"Jay is a young player who I have watched for a while," he told Barnsley's official website.

"I believe he will go on to become an established Premier League player in the future. He is a clever player with a lot of ability and someone who has scored some good goals.

"He needs to play matches and he will get that opportunity with us.

"I am sure both Jay and Filipe (Teixeira) will be warmly welcomed by everybody at Barnsley FC and we are all looking forward to seeing them in action for us."
