Mallik Wilks has moved from Barnsley to their fellow relegation-battlers Hull City on a permanent deal. 

The forward had been on loan with the Tigers since January but, after that deal ran out this week, City triggered an option to buy him for an undisclosed fee. He is thought to be able to play in the remainder of their games this season. 

Wilks signed last summer from Leeds United then scored once in 16 games but has not featured since Gerhard Struber arrived as head coach in November. 

A Barnsley statement read: "Everyone at Oakwell would like to thank Mallik for his efforts during his time with the club and wish him the best of luck for the future."
