Heckingbottom’s vision must be praised after securing this deal for Barnsley



Barnsley picked up their first win of the season with a hard fought win over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night, and manager Paul Heckingbottom will be delighted that his new look side were able to rack up their first three points of the new campaign.

The Tykes had amassed no less than 12 new players before Tuesday’s victory, and Heckingbottom has today added his 13th new face to his Oakwell set up.

French defender Dimitri Cavare has joined the south Yorkshire outfit on a two year deal with the option for a further year, and Barnsley have reportedly beaten Premier League and European competition to bring the player to the Championship.

The 22-year-old is highly rated in his homeland, and graduated from the Lens academy, before a two year spell with Rennes in the French top tier.

Cavare enjoyed a trial with Huddersfield earlier in the summer, and actually played for the Terriers in a pre season friendly at Oakwell.

The youngster’s arrival may signal the end of fellow full back, Andy Yiadom, who is seeking a move away from the club following interest from other sides.

A move to Huddersfield has reportedly broken down, but further interest remains around the league.

Although Cavare has little to no experience of the English game, his skill and tenacity are perfectly suited for the demands of the division, and he should slot straight into the squad ahead of Saturday’s local derby at Sheffield United.

Heckingbottom must be applauded for convincing Cavare to move to the club when others were interested, and will hope his 13th new addition will unlucky for the Tykes opposition this season.

Where do you think your side will finish this season, Barnsley fans?
