Notts County summer trialist seals Championship move
Notts County summer trialist William Hondermarck has sealed a move to the Championship after signing for Barnsley.
The former Norwich City midfielder has joined the Tykes on a free transfer just little over a month after leaving Meadow Lane.
Hondermarck spent the summer on trial at Notts where he featured in a number of pre-season games but was not handed a contract.
And he has now joined the Tykes following his departure from Notts and will initially join Barnsley's under-23s set-up.
He said: "I’m very pleased to have signed here. I was very excited to come here with a set-up like this where the first team is so successful for young players, so I’m very pleased to get a chance at this club.
“I want to help the under 23s as much as possible and then break into the first team; that’s my aim – to make a name for myself.”
Hondermarck was born in France and joined Norwich from Drogheda United two years ago.
He made the bench for a League Cup tie for the Canaries against Luton at the beginning of last season.
Hondermarck featured regularly for the Premier League side's under-23s team and played all four games in the EFL Trophy last term, scoring in a 3-2 win at Plymouth.
But he was released at the end of the campaign and linked up with Notts where he featured in several games.
