Collins Signing Complete

Collins Signing Complete

Lee Collins has put pen to paper on a loan move to Oakwell that will become permanent in the summer.

Reds boss Keith Hill was delighted with the signing insisting he had all the right ingredients to be a success at this level and that a number of Championship clubs had been looking at him.

Collins described himself as a player who can play anywhere at the back, fast and good with both feet.

Collins is hoping to establish himself in a reds defence that has leaked goals this season and prides himself in keeping clean sheets. However he knows there is a competition for places and it may take time to establish himself at Championship level.
