Vickers makes Barnet loan move
28th July 2016
Swansea City youngster Josh Vickers has joined League Two side Barnet on loan for the rest of the season.
The 20-year-old keeper, who joined the Swans on a free transfer in August 2015 after coming through Arsenal's academy, will aim to gain first-team experience with the Bees.
Vickers has proved a key figure for the Swans' development side since arriving at the Liberty Stadium, as he helped them to the Premier League Division Two play-off semi-final last season.
Vickers, who featured in Swansea Under-23s' 2-1 pre-season victory over Morton at Cappielow Park on Tuesday night, has today flown back from the tour in Scotland in order to complete the move, with Australian international Mark Birighitti replacing him.
His move to the Bees means he becomes the sixth Swan to leave the Liberty on loan, with Kyle Bartley, Matt Grimes (both Leeds), Ryan Hedges, Liam Shephard (both Yeovil) and Oliver Davies (Kilmarnock) also making temporary moves.
