'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former 'Orn Forrester set for Tykes switch

Former Goldeboy Harry Forrester is poised to join Championship struggler's Barnsley ahead of the 2011/12 campaign having failed to make the grade at Aston Villa.

Forrester, 20, will move to join the Yorkshire outfit over the summer having agreed a deal with his contract set to expire this summer.

He joined Villa following a tribunal in 2007 having spent two years in the Goldeboys academy set-up. The fee was set at an initial 250,000 which could have risen to 1m if he met certain stipulations.

An attacking midfielder, Forrester never made an appearance for Villa and spent a short spell on loan at SPL side Kilmarnock last season - making his full professional debut.

We at VitalWatford can't help thinking you'd have been better staying put Harry!

That is a shock....thought he had all the attributes to go a long way, but hey, Barnsley is not the end of the world, but having been there, i'd say it's pretty close though.

I have to be honest in saying I've never seen him play, but a club like Villa doesn't agree to potentially shell out a seven-figure sum for nothing. Barnsley could be a great move for him, so long as he gets regular football.
