Tykes midfielder becomes January signing number three

LESS than 24 hours after being drawn against Barnsley in the fourth round of the FA Cup, Portsmouth have brought Tykes midfielder Cameron McGeehan to Fratton Park.

The 24-year-old arrives on loan from Oakwell until the end of the season, following Steve Seddon and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild to the south coast.

McGeehan has made 14 appearances for Barnsley this term and scored twice, but has dropped down the pecking order since the arrival of new boss Gerhard Struber.

He played twice against Pompey last term earning bookings in both games. He was also booked at Fratton Park in January 2017 playing for Luton, a game where he suffered a broken leg - the Hatters among several clubs he has represented.

Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett said: “We’re delighted to sign Cameron. He’s still young, but has a lot of experience.

“He enjoyed a really successful season with Barnsley last year and so we’re really pleased to add him to our midfield.”
