JOHNSON SWINGS IT FOR SMITH
BARNSLEY’S new loan signing Michael Smith is eager to kick-start his career at Oakwell after sealing a move from Swindon on deadline day.
After a number of seasons spent out on loan with a series of different clubs, Smith is keen to make his move to the Tykes a permanent one in January.
And the 23-year-old striker admitted that manager Lee Johnson’s vision for the club was a deal-breaker.
“He thinks he can take me to the next level,” said Smith.
“We were sitting watching clips and he was telling me what I was good at and what I needed to improve, which is what I liked.”
