Barkhuizen Looking Forward To Time With The Squad

17 November 2016

Forward Tom Barkhuizen is looking forward to training with the North End squad ahead of signing for the club in January.

Barkhuizen will sign a two-and-a-half year deal with PNE on 1st January and is looking forward to getting started. 

Speaking of getting to know his new teammates, Barkhuizen said: "It was really important for me to come in as soon as possible to help me bed in for the six weeks before I sign. 

"I think it will help me a lot because when I am ready for January I will already be used to how we play and how the lads play. I think it will be really beneficial for both myself and the club and I will hopefully be ready to go on 2nd January. 

"I think more so because it's such a big step up. I am used to playing a certain way in League Two but obviously Championship football is a lot different.

"You are playing with better players, and some of them have played at an even higher level than this one so it is going to take a little bit of time I know that.

"Thankfully I have this time now to bed myself in and I just want to be ready for 2nd January for Burton away and hopefully by then everything will be fine and I will be settled in nicely and ready to go." 

"I'm really looking forward to it, it's going to be a really exciting challenge for me and hopefully I can do well for this club and help the lads have a good season."
