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!
