Barnsley Football Club is excited to announce the signing of goalkeeper Jamie Searle on a free transfer, subject to clearances.

A full international with New Zealand after making his debut in March of this year, the 21-year-old stopper joins the Club on a two-year deal.

Standing at 6’5” tall, Searle most recently spent time with Swansea City, after first moving to English football from his native New Zealand back in 2019 to join Aston Villa.

After putting pen to paper at Oakwell today, Jamie told us: “I’m looking forward to it.

“It’s been a while coming. To really go out there and show what I can do is really what I’m looking forward to.

““I want to make my debut, play as many games as I can and do as well as I can for the club. For the club, it’s to get back to the Championship. That’s everyone’s goal.”

Barnsley FC Chief Executive Officer, Khaled El-Ahmad added: “We are happy that Jamie has decided that Barnsley is the best place for him to take the next step in his career and will bolster our already excellent options in the goalkeeper position."

Jamie will join the Reds officially from July 1, linking up with Michael Duff's squad ahead of the 22/23 season.

Welcome to Oakwell, Jamie Searle!
