Barnsley sign AFC Telford United striker

Barnsley sign AFC Telford United striker Michael Phenix for a fee in the region of £25,000.

Striker Michael Phenix has admitted that it was a "no-brainer" to leave AFC Telford United after being given the opportunity to play league football with Barnsley.

The Tykes have signed Phenix for a fee believed to be in the region of £25,000, with youngster Rhys Oates moving in the opposite direction on a one-month loan deal.

The 25-year-old told the club's official website: "My manager told me about the interest and it was a no-brainer.

"It all happened overnight. I just thought that I'd go for it and hopefully I can bring some success.

"I was used to training on Tuesday and Thursday nights. I'm looking forward to training every day and getting as fit as I can."

Before his departure, Phenix netted six goals in 14 appearances for the Conference Premier side.
