Midfielder commits his future to the Reds!
We are delighted to announce that Cameron McGeehan has signed a new two-year contract with Barnsley Football Club.
The midfielder has extended his deal until the summer of 2021. An impressive performer and a vital part of Daniel Stendel’s promotion winning side, McGeehan has shown his ability at the heart of the Reds’ midfield, which saw him voted into the EFL Team of the Season for 2018/19.
The recently turned 24-year-old made 44 appearances in all competitions throughout the recent promotion winning campaign, scoring six times. His trademark late runs into the box became a popular sight, but a desire to win the ball back, tackle hard and help defensively also endeared him to the fans.
After signing a new contract, McGeehan told iFollow Barnsley: "Off the back of last season, I want to continue the momentum. We had a really good season, it was great for everyone at the club to enjoy that so I wanted to commit my future and carry on the journey. I want us all to carry the good feeling forward, we all want to push on together. We all know that the last time Barnsley went up they did really well in their first season, so that’s there as a reminder. That’s the goal now, to try and better it."
Co-Chairman Paul Conway told barnsleyfc.co.uk: “We are pleased to see Cameron sign a new contract with us, it is a well-deserved reward for how well he played last season, which was further recognised with him being included in the EFL Team of the Season. This is part of our stated strategy, to develop young players and extend their deals for as long as possible. We have seen Jacob Brown, Cauley Woodrow and Mike Bähre recently further their stays at Oakwell as well, so now we hope to see more players do the same.”
