Dale Jennings’, ultimately disappointing, spell at Barnsley has ended with release after it announced that his contract had been terminated by mutual consent, which still had another year of the three-year deal he had previously penned to run.

The winger seemed destined for great things early in his career when he undertook a two-year spell with German giant Bayern Munich, although he wasn’t ever able to make a first-team appearance.

During his spell at Oakwell, which saw him take in a short loan spell with MK Dons who could be a club interested in him, the 22-year-old struggled and rarely lived up to expectation.

He struggled for fitness and form, with his weight issues a constant cause for concern, but above all else consistency so his departure, with Lee Johnson not seeing him as part of his future plans, is hardly a surprise.

The Official Website confirmed his release with this brief statement.

‘Barnsley Football Club can confirm the contract of Dale Jennings has been terminated by mutual consent.

‘The Club would like to wish Dale the best of luck with his future endeavours.’
