We are pleased to announce that defender Aaron Barnes has joined the Club on a one-month loan deal.

Barnes, 21, joins from League One side Charlton Athletic. He joined the Addicks in 2013 after leaving Premier League side Chelsea.

“We have brought Aaron in because it gives us a lot of flexibility,” said TUFC head coach Gary Owers after taking training this morning.

“He can play at full-back, center half, or midfield. I had to bring him in quickly last night because we didn’t have international clearance for Conrad Balatoni, which we now have got. I had to make sure that I covered that.

“We’re a defender down with Axel [Andresson] returning so it gives us cover if he is in and around the squad.”

We’ll be uploading a video interview onto Official TUFC TV with Aaron soon.
