Former Sunderland winger Liam Lawrence has joined Sky Bet Championship side Barnsley until the end of the season. 

The 32-year-old returned to Greek side PAOK to discuss an early release from his contract, and it seems they have allowed him to make an exit and join his sixth team in ten years.

He told the Tykes website: "It's going to be a good experience. Hopefully I can bring something to the team that will help us survive this year."

"I missed the football here when I left and I'm looking forward to getting back into the thick of it."

"I watched the Championship in Greece on Sky and it gave me fire in my belly again to come back. I've had good experiences here with other teams, I just hope I can have that with Barnsley."

Lawrence is the third signing at Oakwell under new manager Danny Wilson after the arrival of Brek Shea on loan from Stoke, and Ryan McLaughlin on loan from Liverpool.

The Irish international first burst onto the scene at Mansfield Town, earning a move to Sunderland in 2004 before spells with Stoke and Portsmouth. At both clubs, he earned a permanent deal following successful loan stints.

Another loan stint came with Cardiff City in 2012 before his move to Greece, where he's spent almost two-years. Now back in England, the winger could come straight into Wilson's side for this weekend's home game against fellow strugglers Blackpool.
