Ivan Toney has been recalled from Barnsley by Newcastle United.

Barnsley supporters have had a mixed reaction on Twitter, after Newcastle United terminated Ivan Toney’s loan spell at Oakwell this afternoon.

Toney was due to stay with the League One side until January, but an injury crisis at Newcastle has forced Steve McClaren’s side to end the deal early.

With Papiss Cisse out injured, Newcastle were seemingly fearful that they would be left short of options up front, and it seems that Toney will go back on their bench for their fixtures over the Christmas period.

The former Northampton Town man has already been handed plenty of chances in the Magpies’ match day squad, and he has actually made three senior appearances to date.

While on loan at Barnsley he was playing more regularly, however, and he seemed to have established his place in Lee Johnson’s starting line-up.

Toney played eight times while on loan with the Tykes, and he hit the back of the net on two occasions.

Without Toney, Barnsley will have the likes of Sam Winnall and Simeon Jackson competing for a place up front in their line up.

Toney leaves Barnsley with the side sitting in 21st place in the League One table.

Here is the best reaction from Barnsley fans on social media site Twitter to Toney’s recall.
