Bristol City boss Lee Johnson is planning on making a move for Barnsley star Adam Hammill, according to The Sun.
Johnson left Barnsley to take over at Bristol City last month, returning the club where he made 197 appearances as a player, and is now plotting a deal to bring Hammill to Ashton Gate.
The Robins are currently five points clear of the relegation zone in the Championship as Johnson won three of his first five matches in charge as he has been given the task of ensuring survival by chairman Stephen Lansdown.
Johnson brought Hammill, 28, back to Oakwell on a short-term deal in November following his release from Huddersfield Town and has gone on to score five goals in 18 appearances for the Tykes.
The former Liverpool trainee made his name at the South Yorkshire club between 2009 and 2011 where he scored 12 goals in 64 games before moving on to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Hammill is out of contract in the summer and snapping him up on a free transfer is appealing to Johnson as his side lack in the wide departments, although plans will rest on if City survive in the Championship.
