Barnsley fans will be delighted to hear that winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce has signed a new contract at Oakwell.

The Jamaican international has been in fine form this season and is one of the favourites down at Oakwell.

The 25-year-old has improved his all-round game since his move from Southend last year.

A delighted Barnsley boss told the club’s official website :

‘It’s fantastic for everybody connected that Jamal has shown his commitment to our club by agreeing a new three-year deal.

‘Jamal has been in fine form since arriving from Southend last season and we are delighted that he’ll be staying for at least the next three years.’

Campbell-Ryce also told the website:

‘I’m settled up here now and have my family around me.

‘It was a very easy decision to stay and I want to repay everything this club has done for me.’

Jamal will stay at Oakwell until at the least the summer of 2011. The tricky winger has so far made 48 first team appearances, bagging six goals.
