Barnsley manager Keith Hill is hoping to extend the loan deal of Tottenham goalkeeper David Button until the end of the season.

David Button: On loan at Barnsley

Button has made five Championship appearances since joining the Tykes last month, but his loan is due to expire after Saturday's game against Cardiff City.

With Barnsley's regular number one Luke Steele sidelined due to injury, Hill is looking to keep Button at Oakwell for the final few games of the campaign.

"Luke's definitely out so I'm hopeful we can sign David for longer," Hill told the Sheffield Star.

"As far as I know, they don't want to recall him. David is gaining valuable experience and game-time, so it would be great if could extend his deal."

Following the weekend's meeting with Cardiff, the Tykes round off their season with games against Hull, Bristol City and Brighton.
