Apparently close to signing on loan. The same fella who broke his leg and got booed off at fratton Park whilst playing for Luton a few years back. Could be a decent bit of business [^]

Could be, although at the moment he's supposed to be a mid-fielder.

Good player,N.I International, although hasn't reached his full potential yet. Attacking midfielder.

I know he’s not everyone’s favourite, but he’s clearly got pedigree at this level and god knows we need some fight and ego in this team, particularly in midfield. We’re too meek at the minute and are crying out for a couple of characters.

Could be the kind of player we've been crying out for literally three seasons. Hope we get him.

I'm sure when he was at Luton he was on the verge of a move to the championship and then broke his leg which dented his progress. I thought he was class at Luton so let's hope he rediscovers that form should he indeed sign.

No one really knows what happened with 'that' incident at fratton Park and I'm sure fans will soon forget if he starts putting in top performances. Could he be this seasons Ben Thompson but here at the right half the season?!

Marquis point is a key one. He’s been sorely lacking the “Coppinger” factor here. Could be a turning point if we find someone to constantly feed him chances. Would be a shame for Ellis Harrison though!

We were also linked with Bristol City Sammie Szmodics I believe they both play attacking midfield so will be interesting to see which one of the two Jacket goes for?

Only reason people gave him stick at fratton was because he was running around kicking everyone and ended up breaking his leg... good player tho,be happy with that one

Maybe he wasn’t up to it in the Championship, as Barnsley fans and the manager point out, because of that broken leg.
It makes a difference when a break happens.
It changes the marauding, fearless midfielder into a more cautious one.
We may not be signing the same Luton attacking player we saw at Fratton 2 years ago!

We don't want another duffer we have had enough with Bryn Morris and to some extent Cannon who would do well in a lower league a cheap speculative buy that was not up to the standard needed!

He's still played 13 games in the championship for Barnsley this season and scored a couple of goals. Must be a reason for them wanting to get rid of him but I reckon he would be a good signing.

all this talk of 'he is not up to it in the Championship, but could still do a good job for us' - why in gods name would we want a player who couldn't make the step up in 6 months when we get promoted?

every decent player we have missed when sold/returned has gone on to do well in the Championship. That's the level of players we need to get promoted.

Got to be said would Sammie Szmodics be a better option for us and offer less risk?

4 Championship clubs were blocked from taking him on loan, he's played 13 league games this season, he's definitely good enough for the Championship

Only a loan, but could be our best signing for a while

Quite surprised at the amount of people bringing up the incident a few years back and saying he's got to win over some fans (on twitter). Not really too sure why any of us fans should hold that against him. Yes he had a paddy, yes we booed him off (without knowing he had broken his leg) but surely that's the end of it.

The XXXXXXterati can get stuffed.

If he plays well that will win the crowd over, end of story.

It’s a football club, not a kindergarten ffs.

A wee bit of his history:

Roman Abramovich and the £80k price tag for future Barnsley midfielder Cameron McGeehan

ot much in today’s world of tens of millions of pounds being spent on certain individuals, granted, but it is the next statistic that is perhaps a little more eye-opening, and one that underlines the money involved in football at all levels.

McGeehan was just 10 years old.

Not even in secondary school. Still, no doubt, of an age where he ran home from school, put his boots on and went and kicked a ball about with his mates.

Only those mates were fellow players in the Under-9s team at Fulham.

McGeehan, who grew up in Kingston-upon-Thames, was not just a good footballer, either, he was also adept with a cricket bat in his hand and an oval-shaped rugby ball.

He was a good student, too, an A-grade pupil by the time he sat his GCSEs a few years later.

But back to 2005, when Fulham’s more illustrious neighbours Chelsea came calling for this bright young talent.

“Roman Abramovich had just taken over at Chelsea and they were recruiting young players for their Under-10s as they were going to try and push them all the way through,” begins McGeehan.

“We had a lot of young players, such as Nathaniel Chalobah (now at Watford), who was with me at Fulham. They signed a few boys from a few different clubs, guys like Lewis Baker from Luton.”

So was McGeehan then, the first signing of an Abramovich reign that transformed Chelsea into European heavyweights?

“I don’t know about that,” he laughs, before adding, “I’m sure I was the first person he looked at when he took over.”

In all seriousness, a fee of £80,000 for the services of a 10-year-old boy seems a bit of an overpayment, even for Abramovich. At that level, it is considered compensation for the work the selling club has put in.

To Chelsea, it is peanuts, but still a considerable amount to invest in someone yet to go through puberty.

To the mind of an impressionable adolescent, it could be a dangerous burden to shoulder.

Fortunately for McGeehan, his parents were wise to the path it could lead down.

“My dad knew about it, but he didn’t tell me too much about it,” says McGeehan.

“The money had no bearing on me. My mum and dad didn’t get anything, I didn’t get anything, it was purely to do with the amount of training I’d done at Fulham, so the money was to cover me.

“It wasn’t relevant to me.”

McGeehan spent six years in the Chelsea system before his release in 2011. He was picked up by Norwich and scored two goals against his former club in the FA Youth Cup final of 2013, before the boy who had spent so long coming through systems, finally began to emerge. 

Two clubs and four loan spells later, the now 24-year-old McGeehan finds himself at Barnsley. Now 5 loan spells and here.
