DONE DEAL: Barnsley complete deal for Southampton defender Jason McCarthy

Barnsley have completed the signing of Southampton defender Jason McCarthy.

McCarthy has signed outright for Championship side Barnsley in a deal said to be worth around £200,000.

“I am absolutely delighted to be here, it's a thrill to get it over the line," he said on joining Barnsley.

"This was the perfect next step for me, to sign for a Championship club, especially one like Barnsley.

"As soon as I came and was walking around the place, you get a real feel and you sense the history of the club so it's a great feeling to sign.
