Just one incoming and no outgoings on what was a relatively quiet deadline day for the Yorkshire club.

Incoming

Daryl Dike [Orlando City – Barnsley] Loan (with an option to buy)

Dane Murphy, Barnsley FC’s Chief Executive Officer spoke on the acquisition. 

“Most of the club’s work was completed early in this window, but we’re ecstatic to get a player of Daryl’s calibre into the squad. He has had a rapid rise in his career over the last two years showing he possesses a tonne of talent. The club believe he will undoubtedly prove a real asset between now and May.

“It has been well documented that Valérien wanted to strengthen his forward line and in the short-term, this addition goes someway to accomplish that.

“I must thank the group at Orlando City for allowing Daryl to join us and I have no doubt that he will be a success at Oakwell.”
