Former Coventry City loanee has today agreed a mutual termination of his Barnsley contract; becoming a free agent.
Dagnall made four starts and two substitute appearances in his one month loan from The Championship side, scoring once on his debut in City’s 3-1 win away at MK Dons.
After joining Barnsley from Scunthorpe, Dagnall made 61 appearances for The Tykes, finding the net 11 times.
With Callum Wilson out for three months with a dislocated shoulder and Leon Clarke a major doubt for Sunday’s game against Crawley Town, Steven Pressley has revealed he is working on bringing in a striker before the game at Sixfields.
Dagnall had previously expressed his enjoyment of his time at The Sky Blues under the stewardship of Steven Pressley with Pressley also hinting that he would look to bring the striker in permanently, something which has been made that little more achievable.
Pressley told the Coventry Telegraph: “We are interested in Chris but I believe several other clubs are as well so he will obviously be considering his options.”
One hindrance however would be that the club are still under an embargo which requires all signings receiving The Football League’s approval and a wage cap on any arrivals with a weekly salary no higher than 75% of any departed players on a one-out-one-in basis.
If signed in time, Dagnall will likely line up with fellow new signing Denzel Slager against Crawley on Sunday.
