New Barnsley signing Reece Wabara is settling into life at Oakwell.

Former Doncaster Rovers defender Wabara rejected a two-and-a-half year deal at the Keepmoat over the summer, before arriving at Oakwell.

The 23-year-old right-back made his Tykes debut as a second half substitute in their 3-2 win at Millwall on Tuesday night.

“I left Doncaster at the end of the season and I wanted to keep myself ambitious and test myself a bit further,” said Wabara.

“Wherever I went it was about going to a football side that was ambitious and that was my main aim. I wanted to go to an environment that matched my ambition and drive.

“I’ve settled in really quickly and the lads have been brilliant. I played 40 minutes against Millwall which was nice. I’m happy, the infrastructure is great and the science side is too.

“I’ve missed pre-season and I’ve been doing work on my own but nothing compares to training every day. I’m a naturally fit lad but should be up to speed and hopefully I’ll be in for a start on Saturday.”
