Barnsley recorded their first victory of the season in the Championship over the weekend, beating Coventry City 1-0 at Oakwell.
After a 1-1 draw with Cardiff City on the opening day, Barnsley returned to South Yorkshire to beat Coventry thanks to a Dominik Frieser goal and Brad Collins penalty save.
Markus Schopp’s side have four points on the board already and the early signs have been largely positive in the post-Valerien Ismael era.
Bubbling away alongside the Championship’s start is the summer transfer window, which has just a couple of weeks to run.
At Oakwell, things have been relatively quiet in recent weeks.
We run you through a couple of headlines here:
Football League World reported last week that Barnsley were amongst a host of Championship clubs with an interest in signing Brown from Cardiff City.
Middlesbrough have been pushing to sign the defender over the course of the summer, but have now been joined by Barnsley, Blackburn Rovers and Ipswich Town in their pursuit of an agreement with Cardiff.
However, nothing appears to be imminent when it comes to the 23-year-old and a move out of South Wales.
An update from Schopp
Despite the interest in a deal for Brown, there’s not expected to be much movement at Barnsley until later in the transfer window.
In an interview with the Yorkshire Post, Schopp revealed that there was little to report with regard to fresh transfer developments at Oakwell.
He said: “There is always talking between me and the board to get things forward, so it is absolutely our intention to move in the market. But we know we are Barnsley, so we have to take care as to which options we have and then we have to be well-prepared.
“We want to be a bit more flexible in a few certain positions and that is the way of my thinking and what I am thinking of moving forward. It is up to us to find a good solution and I guess it will be more at the end of the transfer window.”
Barnsley’s focus will be building on Saturday’s win over Coventry in the meantime, with Luton Town the visitors at Oakwell on Tuesday.
