Matty Longstaff will be heading to League Two Colchester United instead of League One Barnsley after completing a loan deal with the U’s.
The 22-year-old midfielder will head out on loan for his second spell after spending the second half of last season with Mansfield.
Matty, the brother of Sean, burst onto the first-team picture with a debut Premier League goal against Manchester United in a 1-0 win at St James’ Park. He has gone on to make 20 appearances scoring three goals in total.
He could make his debut this weekend when they welcome the visit of Paul Hartley’s Hartlepool United.
