French Revolution Continues At Oakwell.

Last updated : 17 August 2017 By Rob Miles

Barnsley have made their second acquisition from France in the space of week after signing right back Dimitri Cavare.

The 22 year old started his career in the RC Lens academy and made his senior debut in Ligue 2 in August 2013 helping Lens to a 4-1 win over Auxerre.

In two years with Lens, Cavare made a further 20 appearances helping them win promotion to Ligue 1 at the end of his first season but they were relegated immediately the following year and Cavare missed the second half of the campaign after suffering a ligament injury in February 2015. However by this point he had already agreed to join Stade Rennais at the end of the campaign and thus made the move that summer, ensuring that he remained in the French top flight.

Cavare spent two years with Rennais but again struggled with injury and made only two appearances.

He has already appeared at Oakwell this summer as he joined Premier League new boys Huddersfield on trial and made his debut in their 1-0 win over Barnsley last month. However despite making a further two appearances for David Wagner he was not offered a permanent deal and has now penned a two year deal for Paul Heckingbottom’s side after Barnsley and Rennais agreed an undisclosed fee thus joining compatriot Mamadou Thiam who signed last Friday from Dijon.
