Barnsley are understood to be considering making moves for Peter Clarke, James Coppinger and James Husband, writes The Star

The Tykes have already poached goalkeeper Ross Turnbull and trialist James Bailey from their South Yorkshire rivals and could return for Peter Clarke and James Husband.

Barnsley are eyeing an ambitious move for Doncaster Rovers left-back James Husband.

Barnsley are eyeing an ambitious move for Doncaster Rovers left-back James Husband.

James Coppinger confirmed yesterday he was to leave Rovers after ten years at the club.

Barnsley boss Danny Wilson is looking to strengthen his right midfield options and Coppinger is seen as the ideal target.

A possible move for Husband will be surprising to Doncaster fans as the 21-year-old left-back had ambitions of a move to the Premier League, with Hull City reportedly to be interested.

But The Star believes Paul Dickov may have to sell Husband – if Barnsley meet the asking price – to boost his tight transfer budget.

Former Huddersfield Town defender Peter Clarke has been on trial at Rovers and had agreed to a deal subject to John Ryan and Louis Tomlinson’s takeover of the club.

But the takeover never happened and now the deal for Clarke is up in the air.

Barnsley had been linked with a move for Clarke throughout the summer and now could pounce with his situation at Doncaster not resolved.
