Barnsley Football Club are delighted to announce that Jack Walton has signed a new contract at Oakwell until 2021.
After impressing in loan spells at Stalybridge Celtic, the 20-year-old was handed his first team opportunity during the 2017/18 season and has now put pen to paper on a new three-year deal.
Walton made his debut at Nottingham Forest and went on to play the remaining two games of the 2017/18 campaign against Brentford and Derby County, respectively.
Joining the Club as a 15-year-old from Bolton Wanderers, he became a regular in the Reds’ academy sides. That form earned Walton recognition at international level as he was invited to train with England under 18s, where continued progress and development has led to a new deal at Oakwell.
“I’m really happy to sign it and I want to kick on, work hard and get the Club back into the Championship,” said Walton. “It’s nice to know my future is sorted for three years, the Club have shown faith in me and I am really buzzing to have signed here. I was proud to make my debut, that was my first aim, but now it’s time to try and impress the new Gaffer and help the team get back to where we should be.”
