Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw (pictured) has joined Championship club Millwall for a fee understood to be in the region of £1.25m. The deal entails an initial loan period which will be made permanent in January.
Out of contract in 12 months time, Bradshaw (26) scored 21 goals in 91 matches following his signing from Walsall in 2016 and had been a target for a number of clubs during the summer. According to reports he was keen on the move because his partner lives in the south, and in the circumstances the Oakwell board of directors felt they had no alternative but to agree to the bid after rejecting several others.
Barnsley are now looking for a replacement and are still hoping to bring in 21-years-old Portsmouth striker Conor Chaplin, but any deal, to be completed before next Friday, will have to be initially on loan as was the case with Bradshaw.
