Published Add your comment

Brighton striker Liam Dickinson has joined npower Championship outfit Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old, who had two years left on his contract with Albion, passed a medical at Oakwell and has signed a two-year contract with the option for a third year.

Tykes manager Mark Robins told the club's official website: "He's only 24 and still has room for improvement and we're looking forward to working with him here."

He added: "He has a decent scoring record both in the Championship and in the lower leagues and will be a good addition to our squad for the new season.

"Liam fits in to what we're trying to do here both in terms of on the pitch and within our budget."

Dickinson, Barnsley's fourth summer signing, was brought to the Withdean Stadium by Russell Slade in August 2009, but struggled to maintain a first-team place once Gus Poyet was appointed as manager and finished last season on loan at Peterborough.
