Barnsley have re-signed Killian Ludewig on a season-long loan as planning continues for a second successive season back in the Championship.
Gerhard Struber did a fine job with the Tykes in the Championship last season and, after a tough start under Daniel Stendel, he guided them to safety with a magnificent win over Brentford on the final day of the campaign.
Ludewig was part of the furniture during the second-half of the 2019/20 season, making 18 appearances in the Championship and registering one assist.
Quiz: Are these 10 facts about Barnsley actually true?
Now, it has been announced by Barnsley that the 20-year-old is returning for a second spell at the club, this time having agreed a season-long loan from RB Salzburg.
The defender showed plenty of tactical versatility under Struber, playing on either side of the defence and also pushing forward into a wing-back role.
His form clearly impressed the Barnsley faithful, with many fans overjoyed to see such a positive piece of summer transfer business…
