Barnsley transfer round-up: Leeds set sights on midfielder, forward wanted by PL clubs, 26-y/o linked with Oakwell move

Published

Barnsley will be hoping they can keep up their impressive run of form this season, as they head into a season-defining five matches. 

The Tykes are currently sat fifth in the Championship table, and are five points clear of seventh-placed Reading in the second-tier standings.

Valérien Ismaël’s side have caught the eye with a number of strong performances since the turn of the New Year, and will fancy their chances of a top-six finish this season.

But it appears as though that impressive run of form hasn’t gone unnoticed, with teams registering their interest in some of their players.

Ismaël will be hoping his side can win promotion into the Premier League this term, and then they could look forward to an exciting summer transfer window.

We take a look at the latest transfer news at Barnsley, as they prepare for their next match this weekend, when they take on relegation-threatened Coventry City.

Callum Styles

Football League World have exclusively revealed that Styles has been attracting interest from Leeds United heading into the summer transfer window.

Styles has made 43 appearances in all competitions this term, and has chipped in with five goals and three assists for Valérien Ismaël’s side, as they look to win promotion into the Premier League.

It is also claimed that the likes of Norwich City and Southampton are also interested in a deal to sign Styles, who certainly isn’t short of offers heading towards the end of this year’s campaign.

Barnsley will be hoping they can hold their nerve in the race for promotion, as they’ll stand a better chance of keeping him at the club if they’re playing their football in the Premier League next season.

Jack Payne

Barnsley are reportedly lining up a move for Swindon Town midfielder Jack Payne according to The Sun on Sunday (11th April, page 67). 

Payne has caught the eye with some strong performances for the League One side, who are struggling in their efforts to stay afloat in the third-tier of English football.

He has previously been on the books with Huddersfield Town, and Barnsley are lining up a move worth £500,000 ahead of the summer according to this recent report.

Are these facts about Barnsley's club badge true or false?

Daryl Dike 

Dike has been hugely impressive in his loan spell with Barnsley so far, and will be hoping he can finish this year’s campaign strongly under the management of Valérien Ismaël.

Dike is currently on loan from American side Orlando City, but is attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Everton and Leeds United heading into the summer transfer window according to TEAMtalk.

It seems as though the Tykes are facing a losing battle to keep Dike at Oakwell beyond this year’s campaign, as he looks as though he’s destined for a move to the Premier League regardless of whether the Tykes win promotion into the top-flight.
