Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong joins Barnsley

Emmanuel Frimpong has signed for Championship side Barnsley from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee but he seems more worried about his chances of action OFF the pitch.

The injury-prone midfielder tweeted: 'How am I gonna draw girls now' - meaning he will find it difficult to attract girls - before quickly deleting his update.

Frimpong struck a more conciliatory note later, tweeting the official Barnsley account with the message: 'Hope to see all the Fans there tomoz big derby Game'.

Despite his off-field reservations, the 22-year-old has signed a contract at Oakwell until June 2014.

Frimpong has enjoyed loan spells at Wolves, Charlton and Fulham, but never progressed under Arsene Wenger.

Indeed, he has not made an appearance this season and played just 14 times last campaign after injuring his knee.

He impressed in the youth set up, along with best pal Jack Wilshere, but lacked the required quality at his favourite side and has not played in the Premier League for Arsenal since December 2012.
