Tonight Barnsley have completed the permanent signing of striker Kieffer Moore from Ipswich Town.

The 6ft 6in 25 year old becomes Barnsley’s first signing of January and he comes into the club on a three and a half year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Whilst out on loan with Rotherham United this year he contributed 13 goals and provided five assists and certainly attracted some attention.

He began his career at the non league level with Truro City and his goalscoring exploits quickly saw him rise through the levels, and anyone who has seen him play over the past few seasons will know there is certainly more to him than simply his height.

Speaking to the Official Site as his signing was announced, gaffer Paul Heckingbottom explained.

‘Kieffer is an excellent addition to the side and we`re really pleased to bring him here. It`s a deal that the Club has worked hard on and got done quickly, so I`m delighted with that. He`s a player in top form and will bring something different to improve the side. We were after a player of his qualities, who can offer something different and improve the starting eleven. His height will trouble defenders and cause problems, but as a player he`s got much more in his locker and will score different types of goals. Kieffer has already been in the local area and knows South Yorkshire now, so I expect him to settle quickly and work hard to get into our team.’
