JACKSON’S GOT BUZZ AT TYKES
AFTER an agonising wait, striker Simeon Jackson has expressed his delight at finally agreeing a deal with Barnsley.
Canadian international Jackson has been on trial at Oakwell since July, but only put pen to paper on a contract on Thursday.
The 28-year-old said: “I’m buzzing. I want to say thanks to the gaffer (Lee Johnson) and staff for letting me be a part of what they’re doing.
“I’ve been here a while, so I’m delighted to finally be a part of the squad. I’ve been in with the lads, so I’ve had time to get to know them.
“They’re a great group to be with. There are some talented young players with loads of potential.”
