LIVERPOOL Reserves winger Toni Silva has joined Barnsley on a free transfer.
The 18-year-old, who failed to breakthrough into the Reds’ first team squad, has penned a two-year contract with the Championship outfit.
“He’s young, enthusiastic and quick with and without the ball,” said Barnsley boss Keith Hill.
“There’s a lot of development that we’re going to have to put into him to make him realise his potential but I believe we can do that.”
Silva joined Liverpool from Benfica in the summer of 2009 and had a spell on loan at League Two outfit Northampton Town last season where he scored once in 15 appearances.
