Wilson on Signing of James Bailey

22 July 2014

Reds Manager Danny Wilson caught up with www.barnsleyfc.co.uk after capturing the signing of midfielder James Bailey from Derby County.

The 25-year-old penned a two-year deal at Oakwell, after which Danny said, “He’s a stabilising unit that will give other midfielders the freedom to get forward. 


New Red: James Bailey penned a two-year deal at Oakwell today.

“We’ve set out to do this from stage one; to get a young, eager team that can thrive for years to come - not just the immediate future. James comes into that category very well. He’s still very young but has experience of the Championship and League One.

“I feel he will compliment Conor (Hourihane) and can give us that stability and defensive mentality. It then encourages the likes of Brad Abbott and Paul Digby to get forward. He’s an insurance man and can dictate the tempo of play.

"Hopefully we'll be the recipient of a very hungry, young man coming into our team."
