Georgi Hristov

The signing of Hristov in 1997 still remains to this day Barnsley’s most expensive purchase, bringing the Macedonian to South Yorkshire for a fee of £1.5 million.

The Tykes had just been promoted to the Premier League for the first time and wanted a new striker to help keep them in the league, but he scored just four times in 23 appearances and those goals weren’t enough to prolong Barnsley’s stay in the top flight for more than a season.

His following two seasons with the club failed to impress either as the forward missed a lot of time with a knee injury, and he eventually left the club in 2000 after a miserable three years.
