    BARNSLEY winger Mallik Wilks has completed his protracted loan move to Championship rivals Hull City, who have the option to make the deal permanent in the summer.


    The clubs have been in talks for several weeks regarding Wilks's move to East Yorkshire and a deal has now finally been completed.

    The Reds beat off competition from the Tigers for the former Leeds United player in the summer, bringing in the 21-year-old for a seven-figure fee.

    Wilks said: “I am delighted to be here and I can’t wait to get started with Hull City.

    “I played under Grant McCann at Doncaster Rovers last season and there are a few other familiar faces here, too, so I’ve already been made to feel very welcome.

    “I know this club is aiming for the play-off places and that is the challenge that we face for the remainder of the season. It’s a challenge that I’m really looking forward to.”

    Wilks was a regular in the opening spell of the season for Barnsley, netting his only goal for the club in the 3-1 home loss to Luton on August 24.

    But he has found his opportunities restricted in recent months due to a combination of form and illness.

    Wilks has not featured under Reds head coach Gerhard Struber since he joined the club in mid-November.

    Speaking about the situation with Wilks at his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Struber said: “I think it is a similar situation to Mamadou Thiam.

    "He (Wilks) is a young player who needs game time every week and it is not a good situation for him.

    “We have spoken with him about a loan situation. We will see in the next week.”

    Wilks is the third Barnsley player to leave the club this month.

    Cameron McGeehan and Jordan Green have headed out on loan for the remainder of the season, to Portsmouth and Newport County respectively and more are likely to follow in the next week.

    The likes of Dimitri Cavare, Mamadou Thiam and Dani Pinillos have loan options, while young defender Toby Sibbick, whose last appearance in the league was on December 11, could also head out on loan.

    I hope we don’t come to regret it if his move becomes permanent, if he put his mind to it he could be some player.
    Some reckon his attitude is all wrong but McCann will know him better than most so he must think he can get him playing.
    Either way good luck to him.

    Yet another mistake by the Recruitment Team.

    "Attitude" can't be measured on the famous data Spreadsheet.

    He's obviously out of Strubers plans so probably best all round that he moves. 21year old and definitely has potential so be interesting to see what happens in the summer

    Just not reliable enough Pass for a team in our position and Struber doesn't trust the lad .

    You can see a definite pattern emerging here with Struber , Cavare , McGeehan , Wilks and Sibbick all out of the picture .

    He's deduced Diaby or Andersen or both aren't reliable either .

    He's come in here with no emotional ties to any player something Stendel had to work through and possibly wasn't very good at , although I notice he's shown one or two the door at Hearts since his arrival .

    A new perspective clearly has some merit although I dare say the players signed under Struber's watch may be given more than a good go simply because he's signed them off .
