Barker...'I am here until January at Least...'

"I openly said that I never wanted to leave and I'm quite happy that I'm still here," Barker told the Nottingham Evening Post on Saturday.

"I like it at Mansfield and it is no disappointment to me at all that I am still coming in to the club every day.

"With the loan transfer window having now closed, I know I am here until January at the least - and I hope for even longer.

"I know things haven't gone that well on the pitch since the talk, but I don't think it has particularly affected my performances. I just want to get on with playing now."
