Barnsley FC have recently confirmed the signing of the highly-rated Colchester United midfielder George Moncur.
After Colchester’s relegation, it was inevitable that George Moncur would leave the U’s. Barnsley were not the only team interested – teams like Peterborough, Swindon and MK Dons also seemed keen on the exciting midfielder.
Twitter’s reaction to the transfer heavily consisted of positivity, and, overall, Barnsley fans appear extremelyexcite to see Moncur at Oakwell next season.
Here is a selection of tweets about Paul Heckingbottom’s new recruit.

It appears that, despite the disappointment of him leaving, Colchester fans want to see Moncur do well in his career and are thankful for everything he has done for the club during his 2 year spell with the U’s.
Moncur is only 22 years of age and Barnsley have potentially pulled off a great signing as the midfielder is heavily tipped to have a very bright future.
