Barnsley agree deal for Championship player, set to undergo medical

According to reports in the Daily Mail, Barnsley have agreed a £750,000 deal that brings Ipswich Town stirker Kieffer Moore to Oakwell. 

The 25-year-old will undergo a medical at Barnsley on Monday ahead of his move to Oakwell, with a fee already agreed by the two clubs.

Indeed, the Ipswich Town striker was sent out on loan to League 1 side Rotherham United this season where he managed to bag 13 goals and two assists in 21 games for the The Millers.

Moore was a player that attracted the attention of many other clubs after his performances with Rotherham, after Scunthorphe United, Peterborough United, Charlton Athletic and Bradford City have all been linked with the striker.

Paul Heckingbottom and his Barnsley side are in desperate need of bolstering their attacking options, with them currently finding themselves in the middle of a relegation dog-fight.

Therefore, adding the Englishman to their ranks will be sure to improve their chances on avoiding the drop, having displayed a fine run of goal-scoring form this season, to partner Tom Bradshaw as the only player making it into double-figures.

The verdict

Moore more will be a valuable addition to Barnsley’s ranks.

Having proven he has what it takes to find the back of the net, the Oakwell faithful will welcome the opportunity to see more goals with open arms.

In a side that only really has one prolific striker, the addition of another will provide for added competition, while improving their chances of avoiding relegation.
