Herbie Kane has joined Barnsley on a four-year deal.

The 21-year-old midfielder arrives from Liverpool for an undisclosed fee. He could make his debut against his hometown club Bristol City tomorrow.

He made two League Cup appearances for the Premier League champions and also went out on loan to Doncaster Rovers in 2018/19 – when he scored at Oakwell in a League One draw – and Hull City in the Championship last season.

Chief executive Dane Murphy told the club's website: “Herbie is a fantastic player and we are delighted to have him here at Oakwell. He has had an excellent education with Liverpool, working under one of the finest managers in world football, and has shown that he has the quality to compete at this level. 

 

"Naturally, there were a number of clubs interested in signing Herbie, but we are thrilled that he chose to come to Barnsley. It’s an indication of our devotion to give young, talented individuals an opportunity to showcase their ability and the Club believe he will be a great success.”

 

Kane added: “I’m feeling good, excited and I’m looking forward to getting going. I want to score goals and hopefully I can do that here, look back and reflect on it at the end of the season. It’s a part of my game, trying to score goals from midfield as well as getting assists and helping The team – as much as I can do that, the better.”
