Barnsley have signed Liverpool winger Adam Hammill and Fulham midfielder Andranik Teymourian on loan.

Hammill, 21, joins for the remainder of the season after having a 23-game spell with Blackpool.

The Reds have also agreed a half-season-long loan deal with Fulham for Iran international Andranik Teymourian.

The 25-year-old is looking for competitive games to boost his chances of Premier League football next season after suffering a knee injury.

"I was unfortunate to get an injury that kept me out of the Fulham side when a first team place was on the cards," Andranik told Barnsley's website.

"Although I am now match fit, with Fulham going well in the Premier League, it is difficult to break back into the first team.

"I need games at this stage of the season and I had no hesitation in coming to Barnsley where I know I can do the midfield job that the club needs."

Andranik has nine caps for Iran and played for them in the 2006 World Cup.
