Sheffield Wednesday have signed forward Sam Winnall from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.

Winnall signed for the Tykes from Scunthorpe in 2014 and was out of contract in summer and joins Wednesday on a deal until 2020.

The 25-year-old scored 48 goals in 116 games for Barnsley, which included 11 in 22 Championship appearances this season.

Winnall was also key in Barnsley’s promotion from League One via the play-offs last season scoring 24 in all competitions.

Wednesday are sixth in the Championship, ten points adrift of the automatic promotion places, with Barnsley in eighth.

The striker expressed his delight on Twitter.
