Dominik Frieser has signed for Barnsley FC from LASK Linz for an undisclosed fee, after agreeing a deal until 2022, subject to international clearance.
The 26-year-old is our second signing of the summer transfer window, following Germany U20 international, Kilian Ludewig to Grove Street.
Frieser, who has made 225 first team appearances across the Austrian divisions also featured heavily in LASK Linz’s 19/20 Europa League campaign, defeating the likes of Sporting Lisbon and AZ Alkmaar en-route to a Round of 16 tie against Manchester United.
With the ability to play on either flank and as a forward, Frieser will immediately join his new teammates at St George’s Park in preparation for the upcoming Sky Bet Championship campaign.
Reds Head Coach, Gerhard Struber was pleased to have landed his man: “Dominik has achieved great things in Austria and in Europe, so I am delighted that he has joined us at Barnsley. He comes with lots of experience, he is a player with positive attributes and personal characteristics and I know he will add a lot to this team.
“As my boys continue their preparation for the new season, I look forward to seeing Dominik join the group straightaway and get to know his teammates.”
Barnsley FC’s Chief Executive Officer, Dane Murphy, was happy to welcome another addition into the First Team.
“The Club is delighted to welcome Dominik Frieser to Oakwell. Gerhard knows Dominik as both a player and person and there is already a positive connection between the two. We look forward to seeing that relationship develop over the coming months.
“Dominik comes from a strong club in LASK Linz, achieving success both in the Austrian Bundesliga and Europa League. The club hope his quality continues in the Championship, making him an important addition.”
