Barnsley FC striker Victor Adeboyejo signs contract extension

BARNSLEY have triggered a one-year extension option in Victor Adeboyejo's deal - and he is now contracted at the club until the summer of 2022.

Adeboyejo has been a prominent member of the Reds squad under head coach Valérien Ismaël this term, featuring 24 times.

The 23-year-old played just twice in the tenure of Ismaël's predecessor Gerhard Struber at the start of this season, having spent last season on loan at Bristol Rovers and Cambridge United.

His strong-running qualities have been utilised regularly by Ismaël, while he has netted goals in wins against Preston and Derby.

Reds chief executive officer Dane Murphy said: “We are delighted with the progress that Victor is making and he is continuing to make effective contributions to the team each game.

“Victor has worked extremely hard throughout his time at the club, from under 23s to the senior squad and he is reaping the rewards now with regular first team football under Valérien Ismaël.

“We hope he can continue to impress and add to his goal tally.”

The former Leyton Orient striker joined Barnsley in November 2017 following a successful trial in a season which ultimately ended with the Oakwell outfit dropping out of the Championship.

He played a role in the club's instant promotion back to the second tier in 2018-19 and netted four goals in all competitions in that campaign.

Barnsley welcome Stoke City on Wednesday night - seeking a fourth successive league win to maintain their outside hopes of a Championship play-off push.
