Barnsley had offset the departure of captain Marc Roberts, who left for Birmingham, with the arrival of former Crystal Palace left back Zeki Fryers – the defender follows up the recent signing of central defender Ethan Pinnock.

An academy graduate at Manchester United, having had spells with Tottenham and Standard Liege, Fryers was a free agent following his release at Crystal Palace, where he had spent the past three years.

Fryers, 24, who signed a three year contract at Oakwell, struggled to make an impact in the Premier League but has Championship experience from previous loans at Ipswich and Rotherham.

A familiar face also returned to Barnsley over the weekend as former loanee Lloyd Isgrove joined the Tykes on a permanent basis.

Isgrove, 24, was one of the heroes from the 2015-16 promotion winning side, scoring in the play-off final win to take Barnsley into the Championship.

The winger has also signed a three year contract. Isgrove arrives as a free agent following his own release by another Premier League side, Southampton.
