Barnsley sign Michael Smith on loan

Michael Smith joins Barnsley on loan until January from fellow League One side Swindon Town.

Barnsley have announced that they have signed striker Michael Smith from fellow League One outfit Swindon Town on loan until January.

The Tykes also have an option to sign the 23-year-old permanently when the loan expires on January 4.

Smith scored 18 times in helping Swindon to the playoffs last term, and Barnsley manager Lee Johnson is delighted with the coup.

"I'm really pleased to get this one over the line. Michael will not only bring a great presence to our forward line but he also adds goals, too," he told the club's official website.

"He has all the attributes to complement what we already have here.

"I have tracked Michael through the window and I am pleased to have secured his services on loan initially. I'm looking forward to working with him."

Earlier on deadline day, the Robins signed striker Wes Thomas on loan from Birmingham City.
