The BBC and Barnsley FC have confirmed that Sheffield United have signed Barnsley midfielder Brian Howard following a successful loan spell.

The 25-year-old moved to Bramall Lane on loan in October 2008 with a view to joining on a permanent basis.

The deal is believed to be worth £500,000 after £200,000 was paid up front on his loan signing and it is understood there is a sell-on clause.
Howard joined Barnsley from Swindon in 2005 and helped them win promotion at the end of his first season.

He came to national prominence last season when he played a key part in helping the club reach the FA Cup semi-finals.

Howard scored a last-minute winner as Barnsley beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield and led them to another astonishing victory over Chelsea in the following round.
