Swansea striker Oli McBurnie named Barnsley Player of the Year

Swansea City striker Oli McBurnie has been named Player of the Year at Barnsley.

The Scot landed the accolade, despite only joining the Tykes on-loan in January.

He picked up his award before kick off against Brentford on Saturday, a game in which he scored to help ensure Barnsley's fate is in their own hands with one game remaining.

Reacting to the accolade on social media, McBurnie simply tweeted a picture of his award with the caption: "'An honour."

Barnsley currently sit one place above the relegation zone thanks to their superior goal difference. They face Derby County away on the final day of the season.
