Barnsley have signed forward Omari Patrick on a one-year contract after he impressed during a trial at the club.

The 20-year-old will initially feature for the Tykes' development side, having played well for them in recent games against Ipswich and Portsmouth.

He can play as a striker or on the wing and was previously at Kidderminster.

"He's quick and strong, so he will be a dangerous asset in our attacking play," head of academy recruitment Bobby Hassell told the club website.

"He is also very hardworking off the ball, which is a very important and valuable skill to have.

"It's now down to him to keep working hard and get as much football under his belt as possible."
