The season ended for Barnsley with promotion back to the English Championship- the Oakwell side having finished in second place, three points behind Luton Town.

Ryan has recently been with the Wales squad at their training camp in Portugal under the guidance of former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs.

He becomes manager Derek McInnes’ first signing of the summer and commenting on his decision to move north, Ryan said: “I am quite close with Danny Ward who came here, and he didn’t have a bad word to say. He said if this move ever came about I should take it with both hands- and I’m here!”
