Barnsley will welcome Premier League side Everton to Oakwell as part of the pre-season preparations.

The Toffees make the trip to South Yorkshire on Saturday July 23 with a 3pm kick-off.

Now under the charge of former Southampton boss Ronald Koeman, this is currently scheduled to be Everton's first friendly of the summer.

The two sides met last season in a thrilling League Cup tie at Oakwell, in which Everton eventually went through 5-3 after extra time.

The Merseyside outfit are the second top flight side to be announced as part of the pre-season schedule with Hull City making the trip on Tuesday, July 26.
