Barnsley striker quits the club

Have your say

Barnsley striker Danny Rose has today left the club and signed for League Two Bury for an undisclosed fee.

Rose, aged 20, joined the Shakers on a three-month loan deal last Friday, teaming up with former Reds’ boss David Flitcroft.

But within the space of three days three days the centre-forward has agreed a permanent switch to Gigg Lane on a three-year contract.

Reds boss Wilson had said that Rose was still in his plans, but down the pecking order with new strikers Leroy Lita, Kane Hemmings and Sam Winnall having joined the club.

“We want Danny to get some games,” said Wilson. “With Sam, Leroy and Kane in front of him, well Danny’s going to be the fourth striker.

“He’s really going to have a fight on his hands, so in the meantime he needs games.”

But football moves fast and no sooner had Rose scored for the Shakers at the weekend in his first loan game, the club moved to pin him to a permanent deal.

Rose was on loan at Bury last season and scored three goals in eight games.
