Many Barnsley fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Ipswich Town are in advanced talks to sign Conor Chaplin in the near future.
The 24-year-old forward was a regular for the Tykes last season as they went close to securing an unlikely promotion to the Premier League and is now seemingly on his way out of Oakwell.
Capable of playing wide on the left, as a number 10 and as an out and out striker, Chaplin started 31 games in the league for the Yorkshire outfit and would be a shock departure to many.
The forward netted four goals and racked up three assists last term as he played an important role in helping Barnsley to compete for a top six place.
Naturally the news of Chaplin’s potential departure didn’t take long to reach the Barnsley faithful, with many taking to social media to air their views on the news.

@BarnsleyFC what’s all this about? He would be a useful sub. Plus 2 years on his contract should be asking for atleast 2 mil

Be disappointed if this happens. Not many realise what Chaplin does for the team. Not a better squad player out there either. https://t.co/qQJHFNmeeY

There’ll be many who are happy with this because they don’t understand what Chaplin brings to the side. A very clever player who creates so many chances for those around him. Obviously doesn’t suit Schopp’s system; cracking signing for Ipswich. https://t.co/d6joCLmkKN

disappointed by this tbh, always rated CC and still think he offers something different to the side, great signing for Ipswich. https://t.co/OiGDFswHtD
