Brown makes Barnsley switch

Barnsley have signed former Manchester United defender Reece Brown from Watford for an undisclosed fee

The centre-back, who graduated from United's Academy before loan spells at Oldham and Coventry, has penned a one-year deal to become the Tykes' eighth summer signing and second of the day.

"Having interest from here wasn't something I was going to turn down," he told the club's official website.

"I need to start playing games. My natural position is a centre-back but wherever the manager decides to play me, I'll definitely try my best.

"The manager has told me to keep working hard and the rewards will pay off. I'll work hard in training and aim for as much game-time as I can."
