Aidan White, as he’s said, might be a Guiseley native but knows Yorkshire very well having spent much of his career in the area with him happy continue this during his loan with Barnsley, and ideally beyond, with him set to remain with the club until early in the New Year.

White is due to return to parent club Rotherham on January 3rd but with him ‘really thankful for the opportunity’ for this loan the Reds gave him, and telling the Sheffield Star he knows that ‘the bare minimum is 110 per cent effort’ is what the fans expected, which is what he’ll always give, he’s hopeful of extending his stay at Oakwell.

No talks have yet taken place, with it also depending on what the Millers want, but with him enjoying playing under Lee Johnson and settling well he would be more than happy to stay, he said.

‘My loan is until January 3, but we’ll have to see what happens after that. I’ve not had any conversations yet about staying, but I’d be open to offers and of course if depends on what Rotherham want to do with me. But I’m really enjoying my time at the club and just want to keep helping the lads win games so we can push up the table. You can see there’s lots of quality in the squad.

‘The gaffer brought me in to play games and I’ve thrived on the opportunity. And the lads have been great with me, it’s been really easy to settle in. That always helps you hit the ground running.’

Barnsley have had something of a ‘mini revival’ recently but suffered a setback going into Christmas by losing to Wigan at the weekend.

On Boxing Day, which will be one of the final games (as things stand) of his loan spell, former Reds boss David Flitcroft’s Bury are faced with a win targeted, of course, from that with White aware results are needed but he’s confident they’ll come with them not always matching performances.

He doesn’t doubt the quality within the squad though, reaffirming such thoughts when finishing by saying.

‘We’ve got real quality in this club, but it’s up to us to show that. Some of the performances have been a lot better and we’ve been getting results, but we need to get more wins. And we all know that.’
