Former Northern Ireland U21 midfielder commits his future to Tykes

Cameron McGeehan has signed a new two-year contract with Championship newcomers Barnsley.

The former Northern Ireland U21 international, whowas voted onto the EFL League One team of the season for 2018-19,will now remain at Oakwell until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

The 24-year-old central midfielder, who has played for Northern  Ireland at U17, U19 and U21 levels, scored six goals in 44 appearances last season as Daniel Stendel’s side won promotion from League One.

McGeehan, who joined the Tykes from Luton Town in the summer of 2017, told the Barnsley FC website: "I wanted to commit my future and carry on the journey.

“I want us all to carry on the momentum, every player and member of staff, we all want to push on together. We all know that the last time Barnsley went up they did really well in their first season, so that’s there as a reminder. That’s the goal now, to try and better it.”

The midfielder began his youth career at Fulham before joining Chelsea and then Norwich City, with whom he won the FA Youth Cup.

During his time at Norwich he had loan spells at Luton (two) and Cambridge United before eventually signing for Luton - in 2015 - where he scored 22 goals in 65 appearances.
