Michael Smith Signs For The Reds On Loan!

1 September 2015

Striker signs from Swindon Town until January 4th, 2016.

Barnsley Football Club is pleased to confirm the loan signing of striker Michael Smith.

The Swindon Town striker has signed a loan deal with the Reds which runs until January 4th, 2016. The loan agreement also contains an agreed purchase option for the January 2016 transfer window.

The 23-year-old was a huge part of Swindon’s promotion push and Play-Off Final appearance last season. Michael netted 18 goals for the Robins in 46 appearances in total last term.

A delighted Head Coach Lee Johnson said, "I'm really pleased to get this one over the line. Michael will not only bring a great presence to our forward line but he also adds goals, too.

"He has all the attributes to complement what we already have here. I have tracked Michael through the window and I am pleased to have secured his services on loan initially. I'm looking forward to working with him."

Michael Smith could make his Oakwell debut against Shrewsbury Town this coming Saturday. Get your tickets online now by clicking here!
