TWO OF the six players on loan from Barnsley to Esbjerg have joined the Danish club on permanent deals.

Defender Rudi Pache and striker Steve Simpson have both left, with the Reds having a sell-on clause for Pache. Neither ever played for Barnsley.

Esbjerg – who are owned by Barnsley’s owners – also have Patrick Schmidt, Charlie Winfield, Matty Wolfe and Jordan Helliwell on loan from the Oakwell club.
