BARNSLEY brought in their sixth summer signing on Thursday after announcing Bayern Munich left-back Remy Vita has joined on a season-long loan.
The 20-year-old Frenchman’s deal was finalised just two minutes before Tuesday’s deadline of 11pm - but the Reds had to wait almost two days for his paperwork to be approved.
Vita joined Bayern Munich last October for a reported £1.35m and played 25 times for their second team last season.
Barnsley co-chairman Paul Conway said: “It’s no secret that as a club, we identify young, hungry individuals who both want to play for Barnsley FC and progress in the game.
“Rémy meets that criteria, and arrives at Oakwell with a determination to improve and provide quality on the left-side of Markus Schopp’s team.
“We are proud of the evolution of our club.
“It is significant that we can now sign players and are entrusted by two of the best clubs in world football, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.
“We look forward to Rémy linking up with the rest of the squad following the international break.”
