Liam Lindsay admits he is confident his career can flourish at Barnsley after completing his £300,000 transfer from Partick Thistle.
The 21-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the English Championship outfit just days after turning down a switch to Oxford United.
After making his debut for the Jags at 19, the centre half went on to make a total of 71 appearances, including 42 last term.
And Lindays believes he can thrive under head coach Paul Heckingbottom.
Speaking to the official Barnsley FC website, he said: “I’m delighted to be here. I met the gaffer, he took me into his office and sat down with me outlining his plans for the team, for me and for the club.
“I was really impressed with that. It made me feel good knowing he knew what I was about, that he knew my game.
“Everything was so detailed, it’s a really professional setup and I can’t wait to get started.”
Heckingbottom said: “It’s fantastic to get this deal for Liam across the line.
“We’ve added another talented young player to the ranks which is not only exciting for us as coaches, but the fans as well.
“Despite his age, Liam brings quality experience and will fit in well with the squad.
“He comes off the back of an exceptional season in Scotland and we believe he will kick on here and only improve himself at Barnsley.”
