Barnsley have completed the permanent signing of West Brom goalkeeper Luke Steele on a free transfer.

The 23-year-old has signed a one-year deal following a successful three-month loan spell at Oakwell.

The former Manchester United keeper was signed by Barnsley as cover for the injured Heinz Muller in February.

His heroics helped the Tykes seal memorable FA Cup victories over Liverpool and Chelsea before their Wembley semi-final defeat by Cardiff.

Tykes boss Simon Davey told the club website: "We are delighted to have netted Luke on a permanent basis.


"We now have two top quality keepers in Luke and Heinz Muller, who will be vying for the number one jersey."

The former England Under-18 international was third choice at the Hawthorns behind Dean Kiely and loan signing Michal Danek.
