Sky Bet Championship side Barnsley have signed Kieffer Moore from Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old makes the move from one Sky Bet Championship side to another after spending the first half of the season on-loan at Sky Bet League One side Rotherham. During his time with the Millers, Moore grabbed himself 13 League goals in 22 appearances , thus making a name for himself with the Yorkshire based side.

Moore joined the Tractor Boys from then Vanarama National League side Forest Green Rovers last January and has gone on to make eleven substitute for Ipswich, all as a substitute as Mick McCarthy proved reluctant to start the young striker.

Speaking after the former Yeovil striker completed his medical and then signed a three-and-a-half-year contract, Blues boss Mick McCarthy wished the front-man well for the future.

“Kieffer was back with us last week but it was clear having done well at Rotherham that he wanted to go and play his football elsewhere and we wish him well,” he said.

Peterborough Director of Football Barry Fry admitted that the Posh had agreed a fee for Moore, however manager Grant McCann opposed the proposition by stating it would be a “big financial commitment”

Speaking after signing Moore, Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom said: “He’s a player in top form and will bring something different to improve the side.

“His height will trouble defenders and cause problems, but as a player he’s got much more in his locker and will score different types of goals.”
