The South Yorkshire Star are reporting that Ross Turnbull has signed for Barnsley.
Turnbull is the Barnsley’s third signing in the space of 24 hours after recently securing the signatures of Sam Winnall and James Bailey.
The former Chelsea keeper was out of contract with Doncaster Rovers after being unable to agree upon a deal as a result of John Ryan and Louis Tomlinson’s failed takeover bid.
Turnbull made 28 appearances for Doncaster last season but suffered an injury which kept him out of the final months of the league season. Doncaster were eventually relegated on the final day of the Championship season.
The 29 year-old is the second player that Barnsley have signed from under the noses of their local rivals Doncaster Rovers. James Bailey had been on trial with Rovers before Barnsley beat them to his signature.
The Tykes had seen an exodus of players over the summer with key performers such as Chris O’Grady, Luke Steele and Jacob Mellis all leaving the club. Transfer activity has been slow at Oakwell but has sparked into life over the past few days.
Barnsley boss Danny Wilson has now made six summer signings as he looks to re-build his team following relegation to League One last season.
