Dale Jennings undergoing medical at Barnsley ahead of Oakwell switch.
Former Bayern Munich youngster Dale Jennings is having a medical at Barnsley ahead of a surprise free transfer to the Championship club, reports Sky Sports.
The 20-year-old joined the Bundesliga giants from Tranmere Rovers two years ago but was released earlier this year after failing to settle in Germany.
After arriving at the Allianz Arena in July 2011, Jennings suffered a cruciate ligament injury in October which sidelined him for six months.
But the Englishman recovered and impressed during his stay in Bavaria, making nearly 40 appearances for Bayern’s reserve team, who play in the Regionalliga Sud.
A number of English clubs were said to be keen on the skilful winger but it appears the Tykes have won the race for the youngster, which will prove a major coup for boss David Flitcroft as the Yorkshire outfit look to push on next season after narrowly avoiding relegation this term.
