The 21-year-old, who was released from his contract by Bury on transfer deadline day, has penned an 18-month deal at Oakwell.

Barnsley boss David Flitcroft told the club's website: "He's gone under the radar. It's something we ask our scouts to do - look at players going under the radar. We've been tracking him for quite a bit.

"I look at Andrai, there's so much untapped potential. He's not been developed, he's not been part of a programme and it's risk and reward.

"I think the successes of last season and this season with Dave Perkins, Chris Dagnall, Steve Dawson, Scotty Golbourne, Doney, I'm not going to be told that League Two and League One players can't play in the Championship. It takes time, but it can be done."

The Liverpool-born defender will wear the number 18 shirt.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
