3 Championship clubs who should consider a move for influential Barnsley ace in the summer



Barnsley have been steadily impressive so far this season with Daniel Stendel doing a very decent job in his first season at Oakwell. 

The Tykes are in with a very good shot at achieving an immediate return to the Championship, currently sat in second place with 31 matches played.

A 4-1 win against Gillingham stretched their winning record to five matches and eight in their last ten, scoring 22 goals in the process.

There have been plenty of stand out performers along the way.

Adam Davies has remained as reliable as ever in goal, Ethan Pinnock and Liam Lindsay have been invaluable in defence and Kieffer Moore and Cauley Woodrow continue to act with brutal efficiency in attack.

Brad Potts was also shining in midfield before his January move to Preston, a potentially big blow for the club, but Alex Mowatt has stepped up impressively in his place and is now bossing the midfield, being directly involved in six goals since the turn of the year.

But could his services be of use higher up?

Here, then, are three Championship clubs who would benefit from his arrival…

Stoke City 

The Potters have plenty of options in this area including the likes of Joe Allen, Ryan Woods and Charlie Adam, but they are all similar players.

Mowatt would bring a much-needed blend of energy and quality to Nathan Jones’ midfield and finally give them somebody to drive attacks forward.

Birmingham City 

All of Garry Monk’s midfielders are rather conservative options.

Gary Gardner, Craig Gardner and Maikel Kieftenbeld are all very useful players to have, but none possess the quality of Mowatt in the final third.

Imagine how much Jutkiewicz and Adams would enjoy having a player like that behind them.


There is no doubt that the Bees possess plenty of quality operators in midfield.

But Mowatt is tailor-made for Thomas Frank’s slick style of rapidly incisive attacks and would fit in perfectly at Griffin Park.
