KENYA BROWN - Tuesday, March 11, 2014
English Championship side Barnsley has cut short the loan deal of U.S. international Brek Shea and sent him back to Stoke City of the Premier League, according to statement on the team's website on Monday.

The 24-year-old, who was sent to the Tykes after failing to break into head coach Mark Hughes' starting eleven, has been sent back as a result of what has been called "a breach of club discipline."

"Winger Brek Shea has returned to parent club Stoke City," the club announced in a press release on Monday.

Shea embroiled himself into controversy earlier in the month when he made an offensive gesture towards some of Barnsley's fans after 5-0 defeat to Hudderfield Town. The team took the decision to end the loan deal after an internal investigation.

The former FC Dallas man went to Twitter to offer an apology to the Barnsley fans afterwards. "I would like to unreservedly apologise for what happened at the end of the match,"he said. "I did not intend to offend the Barnsley fans, who have shown tremendous support for the team. The best way I can show this and repay you, the fans, is with my performances on the pitch."

Shea ends his loan spell at Barnsley having played eight games in total.

English clubs ignore professionalism all the time as long as a player is producing on the pitch. Suarez at Liverpool is a prime example. However, if you aren't producing on the pitch then you better behave yourself. Shea didn't and will likely pay the price as he should.

This would seem that Shea has doomed himself to fall back into the MLS eventurally. Proffessionalism or lack there of is something that English Clubs do not abide. Look for Shea to cut soon.
