Barnsley defender Scott Wiseman has left the club on a free transfer and signed for Preston North End.
And striker Chris Dagnall has been released from his Reds’ contract by mutual consent as new manager Danny Wilson starts his January clear out.
On releasing Wiseman, Barnsley manager Danny Wilson said: “We wish him all the best and it’s the way things work out in football; we just needed to freshen things up.”
Wilson has signed Liverpool right-back Ryan McLaughlin and Stoke City winger Brek Shea on loan until February, both with a view to longer deals.
And The Star understands there are likely to be more new signings at Oakwell this month as Wilson looks to guide the strugglers out of the relegation zone.
