Shaun Barker has today left for Derby County in a deal around £900,000. It looked like it was on the cards from the start of the summer when Nigel Clough pointing out Barker for a move to the County Ground. £900,000 is a great fee considering in the middle of last season Barker had a little off patch. Some of that money I’m guessing will go to Rotherham as a sell-on clause.
He’s been a great servant to the club over the past three years and pretty much was part of the recent years of success at the club. Over 134 appearances for the club and a few goals. The highlight goals a winning header against Crewe when we were down to 10 men and this effort in the League One Play-Off Semi Final at Oldham.
Thanks Shaun and Good Luck.
