Barnsley have wrapped up the £200,000 signing of Cheltenham Town striker Kayode Odejayi. The 25-year-old former Bristol City frontman follows fellow former Robins Grant McCann and Martin Devaney to Oakwell, with Town boss John Ward wihing his former player well. He told the club's official website: "Obviously it is disappointing to lose Kay, but the opportunity to play at a higher level was too good for him to turn down and for the club it is another record transfer fee. "Kay has improved tremendously in the last three years and he deserves the chance to test himself in the Championship. "We must now move on and the challenge for the forwards that remain at the club is now to step up and fill his shoes by scoring the goals for us."
