Former Liverpool and Huddersfield Town winger Adam Hammill has returned to Barnsley on a short-term deal, the club’s official website has announced.
The 27-year-old was a free agent after Huddersfield cancelled his contract on transfer deadline day in August, and had recently joined in training at former club Barnsley in the hope of winning a contract with the South Yorkshire outfit.
Hammill began his career with hometown club Liverpool but failed to make a first-team appearances for the Reds, and after loan spells at various clubs including Barnsley, he joined the Tykes on a permanent basis in the summer of 2009.
His form at Oakwell led to a move to the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2011, but he failed to hold down a first-team place at Molinuex and left for Huddersfield in June 2013.
The winger was a first-team regular in West Yorkshire, but he fell out of favour under Chris Powell, which led to a loan move to Rotherham United towards the end of the last season.
Hammill admitted himself that off-the-field problems effected his career at the John Smith’s Stadium but he now looks to get his career back on track with the Tykes.
Barnsley are currently struggling in League One so far this season, sitting in 22nd place with 14 points from 16 games, and manager Lee Johnson is feeling the pressure after being knocked out of the FA Cup on Saturday by National League side Altrincham.
