Barnsley capture Manchester City star Gai Assulin

Championship side Barnsley have completed the signing of Manchester City midfielder Gai Assulin until 3rd January 2012.

The 20-year-old started his career at Catalan giants Barcelona but after being released in July last year was snapped up by City on a two-and-a-half year deal.

He is yet to feature in a competitive game for Roberto Mancini’s men and will see the move to Oakwell as a great chance to get his fledgling career off the ground.

Assulin is the youngest ever full Israeli international after making his debut at the age of 16 but still regularly appears for the country’s Under-21 side. Furthermore he is no stranger to South Yorkshire having turned out against the England Under 21s at Oakwell in a 4-1 defeat on the 5th September.
