After forcing a move away from Oakwell at the end of the transfer window you could be forgiven for thinking George Moncur had burned his Barnsley bridges.

That does not seem the case as manager Paul Heckingbottom has left the door open for the midfielder to return in January.

The desire to play football seems to have impressed Heckingbottom rather than sulking on the sidelines.

Heckingbottom has challenged the 23 year old to rack up goals and assists so upon his return he will act as a new signing.

Moncur left the club for Peterborough United just two months after signing from Colchester this summer.
