Young midfielder pens contract until 2024

11 April 2022

Barnsley Football Club is delighted to announce that Matty Wolfe has signed a new two-year deal.

The 21-year-old academy graduate has been a mainstay in the starting line-up since arriving back at Oakwell from his loan spell at Esbjerg fB in January and has gone onto make 10 appearances in that time.

He made his full debut at home against Bournemouth – 18 months after first featuring for the Reds at the tail end of the prolonged 19/20 campaign in a dramatic victory over Nottingham Forest.

Khaled El-Ahmad, Barnsley FC Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are thrilled that Matty has chosen to extend his stay with us. He is a player with a lot of talent and potential, who is still continuing to develop within our first team set-up.

“He has had to work hard, be patient and overcome numerous injury setbacks during his time with us, but this is testament to his character and ability that he has gone onto establish himself as a regular in a matchday squad.

“The backroom staff here at Oakwell also deserve tremendous credit for his progression through the ranks after joining us as a 10-year-old, and we are all excited to see what the future holds for Matty.”

Everyone at Barnsley FC would like to congratulate Matty on his new deal.
