Toby Sibbick has joined Heart of Midlothian for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

The versatile defender signed for the Reds in the summer of 2019, following a breakthrough season with AFC Wimbledon.

Toby went on to feature 56 times during his spell at Oakwell, including the two 20/21 Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final games against Swansea City.

The 22-year-old is a further example of Barnsley FC’s distinguished history of developing defensive players, as he now returns to Tynecastle Park to link up with Robbie Neilson’s squad, on a permanent basis.

Barnsley FC Chief Executive Officer, Khaled El-Ahmad, said: “It is difficult to establish a regular place in the team with such competition in the central defensive position at Oakwell. As a player who wants to continue his development by playing regular first team football, Toby expressed his desire to consider alternative opportunities.

“With that, we have established a deal that suits all parties and I wish him luck with his move to the Scottish Premiership and Hearts.”

Speaking on his departure, Toby Sibbick added: “First of all, I would like to thank everyone associated with Barnsley FC for making my time at Oakwell as memorable as it has been. Since joining three years ago, I have experienced some incredible highs and I feel as though I have grown both as a player, and a person. 

“I will always look back on my time in South Yorkshire fondly and wish nothing but the best for the Club and supporters in the future.”

All at Oakwell would like to thank Toby for his commitment
