Barnsley have today swooped to sign winger Dale Jennings on a three-year deal following his release from German giants Bayern Munich, writes Tom Bestwick.

The 20-year-old Liverpudlian, shown the door by the new European and German Champions at the end of last season, becomes the Reds first summer signing as David Flitcroft continues to reshape his squad ahead of the new Championship season.

Jennings rose to prominence while playing at Tranmere Rovers during the 2010/11 season in which he earned the Football League One Apprentice of the Year award before making the move to the Allianz Arena.

“I spoke to the manager and the assistant manager and they outlined the plans they had for me and I felt Barnsley was the right club to take me further.” Jennings said.
