Toni Silva: Two-year Barnsley deal

The Portuguese youth international becomes Keith Hill's fifth signing of the summer, and the Tykes manager said: "He's left-footed and likes playing on the right. He's quick with and without the ball. He's young and enthusiastic. There's a lot of development we've got to put into this player to make him into a £3million player and I believe we will be able to do that."

The 18-year-old joined Liverpool from Portuguese giants Benfica as a youngster and spent time on loan at Northampton last season.
