Lee And Easy For Barnsley.

Last updated : 24 June 2016 By Rob Miles (BarnsleyBoy)

Barnsley have today completed a deal to sign 21 year old striker Elliot Lee from Premier League outfit West Ham United.

Lee signed a professional contract with the Hammers in August 2012 and made seven appearances for the East London outfit for them in the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.

Most of the Durham born youngster’s experience has come in Leagues One and Two however and he turned out for both Blackpool and Colchester last season including two games against the Reds – Blackpool’s 4-2 defeat in December and Colchester’s last gasp 2-2 draw in April.

This is the second influential Colchester player that Barnsley have recruited this summer after landing their top scorer George Moncur.
