Dan Crowley joins Barnsley on loan from Arsenal

Barnsley have signed Arsenal playmaker Dan Crowley on a half-season loan.

Crowley, who celebrates his 18th birthday on Monday, will stay at Oakwell until January 3, 2015 after the Reds beat off competition from several Championship clubs for his signature.

Boss Lee Johnson said: "I'm delighted to welcome Dan on board. He is an exceptional and exciting talent who is very highly thought of at Arsenal and we are extremely pleased that we have been entrusted with his further development.

"This loan signing further evidences that Barnsley can persuade some of the country's best young talent to come to us, even where there is stern competition. Undoubtedly, at just 17 years old, Dan is one of the best young players in his age group in Europe.

"Dan has genuine, top-level skill and quality. I am delighted Arsenal have chosen Barnsley to aid the development of this exceptional talent, as well as aiding us in our pursuit of promotion."

Crowley, an England youth international, has not featured for the Gunners first team, but was involved in the club's pre-season tour to Singapore.
