Barnsley have signed ex-Oldham defender Jean-Yves M'voto on a two-year deal.
The 24-year-old had looked set to link up with former Latics boss Paul Dickov at Doncaster, where he had been training, but has decided on a move to Oakwell instead.
"I'm really happy to be here," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.
"Everything was fine at Doncaster but I met with the Barnsley manager and he told me about his project and how he wanted to do things and I really liked it. It happened very fast.
"I wanted a new challenge and the manager's philosophy is all about football, which is something I really agree with.
"I hope there are no bad feelings at Doncaster because I really respect everyone there."
