Barnsley v Swansea City : The USA loan player that is a complete success
Saturday, 15th May 2021 11:12 by Keith Haynes
Swansea City had a dabble or two in the MLS over the last January transfer window. Jordan Morris and Paul Arriola are well documented, and the chances taken on them on the other side of the Atlantic proved fruitless. They are both now back in the USA. However, and very quietly, one Orlando City loanee in a Barnsley shirt has played nineteen games since his arrival in January, and has scored nine goals. He is what we call a proper ‘danger man’
Pace, aggression and an array of goals is what Daryl Dike has brought to Barnsley since his arrival on February 1st, just three and a half months ago. You want a bicycle kick ? Yes of course in April he did that to beat Huddersfield, you want a goal of the season ? No problem Daryl has that in his locker. In fact nine times he has hit the back of the net for Barnsley since February, and the bad news is it is now confirmed he is available for the play off semi finals against the swans.
Yes, and all on loan from the Lions of Orlando City SC, He made his debut for the United States on January 31, 2021, as a 65th-minute substitute for Paul Arriola in a 7–0 friendly win over Trinidad and Tobago. Now there’s a comparison.
