It’s lovely to be given the opportunity to sign a new deal.”
After seeing another one of his valued young prospects extend his Oakwell stay, Head Coach Daniel Stendel told barnsleyfc.co.uk: “Victor has been very good so far in my time here. He has scored goals and helped the team, I like seeing him progress and develop as a player as well as a professional off the pitch. We’re very happy he has chosen to sign a new deal and will continue in our team as we look to achieve our goal.”
Reds Chief Executive Gauthier Ganaye expressed further satisfaction in securing one of the club’s promising youngsters to a longer-term contract, he said: “It’s another positive signing for us after the other extensions in recent weeks. It was very obvious, very quickly, that Victor wanted to be here and the contract was never in doubt. We have been very clear as a club that our philosophy is to develop young players and bring them into our first team, that’s exactly what we have seen under Daniel’s leadership this season. We also need to say a huge well done to Victor, his application and determination has paid off, he’s performed well and deserved this deal.”
