Things Lukeing Up For Reds In Transfer Window

Last updated : 13 June 2019 By Rob Miles

Barnsley have made an eye-catching acquisition in the transfer market with the signing of Luke Thomas from Derby County.

The 20 year old who started his career in the youth setups at West Brom and Cheltenham had a productive loan spell in League One last season, making 44 appearances and scoring five goals for Coventry City - one of which came in the 2-2 draw at Oakwell in March.
Thomas started his career in the National League with Cheltenham but made only one first team appearance in an FA Trophy tie against Chelmsford before moving up three divisions to join Derby County in 2016.
After a loan spell back in the National League with Gloucester City in 2016-2017 he finally made his Rams bow in November 2017, coming on in the 89th minute of a 2-0 win over QPR.
Thomas would make only one more appearance for Derby, as an 85th minute substitute in a 3-0 win over Bolton in April 2018 but signed a new four year contract that summer before moving to Coventry.

However Thomas must have felt Championship outings would be in scarce supply at Pride Park where Derby will be looking to put May's play-off final heartbreak behind them by launching another promotion push so the winger has today arrived at Oakwell for an undisclosed fee, signing a four year contract.
