MAR­CUS PED­ER­SEN has vowed to bring some in­ter­na­tional pedi­gree to Barns­ley’s strik­ing depart­ment.

Ped­er­sen, capped twice by Nor­way, has signed a sea­son-long loan deal from Dutch side Vitesse.

And af­ter be­ing con­vinced to make the move to Eng­land by Tykes boss David Fl­itcroft, the 23-yearold has promised goals.

“I like it when a man­ager looks at each per­son as an in­di­vid­ual and in David Fl­itcroft I can see he is that type of per­son,” said Ped­er­sen, who will be joined at Oak­well by for­mer Celtic winger Paddy McCourt.

“First and fore­most I am a striker, I like to get in the box and at­tack the ball and I like to score goals,” Ped­er­sen says.
