Barnsley Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of Adam Hayton.

The goalkeeper joins the Reds on a two-and-a-half-year deal, most recently at Spurs where he has progressed through the age groups.

Aged 18, Hayton has featured in the UEFA Youth League for Spurs, training with the first-team at Tottenham under Premier League winning manager, Antonio Conte.

Head of Goalkeeping, Thomas Fawdry commented on the signing: “We are delighted to bring Adam to Barnsley,” began the 36-year-old. “He’s a talented young goalkeeper with attributes that we require our goalkeepers to possess and will positively contribute to the group. We look forward to seeing Adam develop with us at Oakwell.”

Upon penning a deal with the Reds, Hayton expressed his excitement regarding the move: “To be honest, I’m absolutely delighted,” he said. “As soon as I first heard there was interest, I wanted to get the ball rolling really. I really can’t wait to get going.”
