Barnsley Football Club welcomed striker Sam Winnall to Oakwell from Scunthorpe United in July 2014.

The 2013/14 League Two top goal-scorer Winnall joined the Reds on a three-year deal, after both Clubs agreed an undisclosed fee to take the striker from Glanford Park to Oakwell.

"I'm really pleased to have joined an ambitious club," said Winnall. "I can't wait to get the season started.

Born in Wolverhampton, the striker emerged from his hometown club’s youth system and spent time out on loan with four different clubs – most notably Burton Albion and Hereford - before joining the Iron in the summer of 2013.

During his first campaign, the midway points of his debut Oakwell season was marred by a troublesome hamstring injury but the forward netted 13 goals in 36 appearances.
