Barnsley winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce has signed a new three-year contract with the Tykes.

The deal keeps the 25-year-old Jamaican international at Oakwell until the summer of 2011.

Campbell-Ryce told the club's website: "It was a very easy decision to stay and I want to repay everything this club has done for me."

He signed the contract before Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday, where he scored a penalty.

The former Rotherham United and Chesterfield winger helped the Tykes secure their fourth Championship win of the season by converting the penalty after Mark Beevers' foul on Stephen Foster.

Campbell-Ryce joined the Tykes in August 2007 from Southend United and has scored six times in 49 appearances for Barnsley.

Barnsley manager Simon Davey said: "It's fantastic for everybody connected that Jamal has shown his commitment to our club by agreeing a new three-year deal.

"Jamal has been in fine form since arriving from Southend last season and we are delighted that he'll be staying for at least the next three years."
