Barnsley have today announced the signing of ex-Fulham youngster Cameron Thompson.

Thompson, 20, is a product of the Fulham youth academy.

He’d spent the past nine years at the club but his summer release, before today signing for Barnsley following a successful trial period.

A striker, Thompson netted 15 times in 31 appearances for Fulham’s U18 side, scoring eight for the club’s development squad.

He’ll initially link up with Barnsley development squad as well.

Speaking to barnsleyfc.co.uk about his move, Thompson spoke of his delight:

“I’m very pleased to have signed. It’s been a long time because I got injured when I got offered and I had to wait to do my medical, so it’s been a long process. But I’m just happy to get the deal done and get started at Barnsley.

“The plan and the expectation was to get started straight away and to score two goals in my first two games is a good start, but it’s just about keeping the run going now.

“I want to come in and replicate what I’ve been doing over the years, which is scoring goals, and hopefully I can do that here.
