Barnsley Football Club secured the signature of Marley Watkins on a two-year contract after beating a host of Clubs to land the Scottish Cup winner.

The 24-year-old was hot property after a remarkable season with Inverness Caledonian Thistle - and just days after netting in their 2-1 Cup Final win over Falkirk - Head Coach Lee Johnson convinced the forward to sign on the dotted line at Oakwell.

The hardworking forward, who is capable of playing on the wing or up front, struck nine goals whilst providing 16 assists for Inverness and is delighted at the prospect of playing under Lee Johnson and at Oakwell, turning down lucrative offers elsewhere to become a Red.

He scored his first goal in the thrilling League Cup tie against Everton at Oakwell in late August before opening his account in the league against Swindon Town with a cool one-on-one finish. The forward quickly became a fan favourite as his pace and trickery out wide continues to cause problems for defenders.
