The 19-year-old midfielder becomes Neil Redfearn’s second signing after a deal was struck with the Premier League heavyweights on Friday afternoon.

Barker, who has represented England at under 18 level, signed a five-year professional contract with City in August this year, after impressing with his rapid rise through the club’s Academy.

He is an exciting young player. He represents a ball carrier who will go past players and make things happen. He is a goalscorer who is quite young in years but has had quite a lot of experience around the first team at Manchester City.

They think that he is going to develop into a top player so for us to get him is a massive plus. It is a great deal for us, he is what we need. He has the ability to open sides up and he can create goalsocring opportunities and he can score goals. He will be a massive addition for us

– Neil Redfern
