Donovan close to all-clear
Barnsley winger Kevin Donovan is hoping to be given the all-clear to start pre-season training with the rest of Steve Parkin's squad.

Donovan missed Barnsley's end-of-season run-in and their unsuccessful fight against the drop after tearing a patella tendon in his knee in March.

However, the 30-year-old former West Bromwich Albion and Grimsby player has been working on a return to fitness.

Now following a knee scan he is waiting to see whether he can resume full training at the start of July.

"Kevin should be there or thereabouts in time for pre-season training but that all depends on what the surgeon says," Barnsley physio David Bailey told the club's website.

Midfielder Kevin Dixon is also hoping to be fit for the start of the season after a stress fracture of the shin prevented him from making a first-team appearance for Barnsley last season.
