Barnsley have swooped to sign Liam Kitching from Forest Green Rovers.
For a number of months now speculation surrounding Kitching has been bubbling away around Oakwell, with Barnsley finally making a breakthrough with the centre-back in the opening week of January.
A club announcement has confirmed that Kitching has signed a four-year deal at Oakwell, taking the step back up into the Championship.

After progressing through the ranks at Leeds United, Kitching took the plunge into senior football with Forest Green.
He made 53 appearances for the club since signing from Leeds, but the 21-year-old now links up with a vibrant young squad on the rise at Oakwell.
Under Valerien Ismael, Barnsley are ninth in the Championship table and only three points outside the play-off places. Faith in youth has been good to them, with this another show of faith in a youngster.
