The 21-year-old was highly-rated at Turf Moor having moved to the Clarets from Arsenal as a teenager, and he made six Premier League appearances under Sean Dyche in the previous campaign.
However, the Burnley chief has clearly decided Benson isn’t in his plans moving forward, with the Tykes announcing his arrival on their official site this evening.
Given his undoubted potential, combined with his pedigree having featured in the top-flight last season, it’s fair to say that the Barnsley fans were very pleased by the latest bit of business done by the club.
What was the score the last time Barnsley played at each of these 24 stadiums?
Bringing in a midfielder was sure to be a priority for the Yorkshire outfit after Alex Mowatt’s departure and Benson will hope to be a key figure in the team this season.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter…

Great statement of intent by Conway & co. 4 year deal shows he's hopefully going to be instrumental for the Reds moving forward. Squad's shaping up nicely! Lad from Toulouse and a LWB, job's a good 'un.
