The Saddlers have been dealt another transfer blow as 21-year-old Southampton defender Jason McCarthy has penned a three-year contract with Barnsley.
Walsall have been dealt another transfer blow as Sky Bet Championship side Barnsley have now confirmed the signing of Southampton defender Jason McCarthy, on a three-year deal.

21-year-old McCarthy, who played in every minute of first-team football during his season-long loan spell at Banks's Stadium, is believed to have cost the Tykes around £200,000 and, along with Bury-bound Eoghan O'Connell, was one of the Saddlers' transfer targets.

Barnsley Football Club can today confirm the signing of 21-year-old defender Jason McCarthy from Southampton. We are delighted to welcome the highly-rated defender to Oakwell on a permanent basis from Premier League side Southampton.

The much sought after defender has signed a three year deal with the Club after Paul Heckingbottom fought hard to bring in one of his top summer targets.
