BARNSLEY have completed the signing of goalkeeper Christian Dibble.

The 19-year-old, formerly of Bury, has put pen to paper on an initial one-year contract with the option of a further year.

"I'm obviously very pleased," the teenager said. "I'm here to get better, develop and get fitter. I'm going to get stronger and it can only help that I’m training with better players and coaches who will get the best out of me."

Set to be Barnsley's third choice goalkeeper behind Luke Steele and Ben Alnwick, Dibble, the son of Andy, a former Manchester City and Wales 'keeper, is a direct replacement for Lukas Lidakevicius, who left the Reds after turning down a new contract.

"He's got good pedigree as well as good size," said David Flitcroft. "There's a lot of work to do but we think we can make him better, fitter, leaner and more athletic."
