Season loan deal
Boys Town Jamaica, Notodden FK, Barnsley
Jamaica (21 full caps)
The Barnsley defender O'Neil Thompson joined Hereford United on a season long loan deal on July, 2, 2010.
Thompson was due to link up with Darlington, but that deal was cancelled after Davey left the Quakers.
The 26-year-old defender has been capped 21 times by Jamaica, with the Tykes keen on offering him first team football away from Oakwell.
The 6'4' defender, nicknamed Bigga, had a spell on loan at Burton Albion in League Two last season, and previously featured for Notodden FK in Norway.
Thompson made his international debut in April 2006 in a friendly match against the United States, and more recently was a member of the Jamaican squad in the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Speaking to the Hereford Times about the deal, Bulls boss Simon Davey explained the background.
'It's a season-long loan so effectively he is a Hereford United player.
'He's got one-year left on his contract at Barnsley so he becomes our player.
'He's a full international and he's a player that can play in two positions. He plays in central midfield for his country and he's also played at centre-back so he gives us an option.'
