Rochdale Football Club is delighted to announce the permanent signing of Reuben Noble-Lazarus.
The 21-year-old has joined Dale from Barnsley, penning an 18-month contract.
Noble-Lazarus has been on loan at Spotland from the Tykes since October and has made six appearances since his move to Rochdale, netting twice.
Manager Keith Hill commented: “He’s an exciting player. He’s got outstanding qualities and I’m glad that we’ve got him signed up for next season as well because that was our intention.
“It’s not just for this season - we wanted some benefit from signing him and I feel as though signing him on an 18-month contract gives the football club, Reuben and myself, the best opportunity for Reuben to express himself and to find a home.
“I feel as though he’s maturing now and I feel as though I understand Reuben better. He understands what’s required better and we’ve still got to develop Reuben.
“What we’ve seen from Reuben is moments of great excitement and real talent and we’ve got to make sure that we can prepare him for more of those moments that we’ve seen.”
