Sky Bet Championship side Barnsley are closing in on Luton Town ace Cameron McGeehan, according to HITC Sport.
The 21-year-old midfielder has been one of the stand-out performers in League Two this season – he has scored ten times and provided two assists in 24 appearances.
What makes this deal a surprise, is that the highly-rated talent is currently sidelined with a long-term injury after breaking his leg against Portsmouth.
However, despite the injury, McGeehan has been linked with a move to the Championship.
Paul Heckingbottom and Barnsley have developed a reputation of picking up lower league talents and enhancing their development, and Cameron McGeehan could be the next talent that is brought to Oakwell.
The goalscoring midfielder could potentially be a natural replacement for Conor Hourihane who left the Yorkshire club to join Aston Villa.
It would be a risk for Barnsley to sign the midfielder who is currently sidelined with a long-term injury, however, it could prove to be another astute signing made by Paul Heckingbottom’s side.
