28-year-old Adam Hammill has emerged as a top target for Championship side Bristol City, according to the Bristol Post.
After steering the Robins to promotion last season, manager Lee Johnson is aiming to strengthen his side and new wingers is on his agenda.
Johnson signed Hammill for Barnsley after the wide-man’s contract was terminated at Huddersfield and the former England youth international repaid his manager’s faith with a string of exceptional and exciting performances at Oakwell.
His goals and assists have contributed heavily towards Barnsley’s bid for promotion back to the Championship.
Hammill was only signed on a short-term deal by Johnson so he becomes a free agent this summer and could be reunited with his former boss. Bristol City will be rivalled by Barnsley, who will offer him a new deal should they get promoted.
The Bristol Post also reports that Hammill’s team-mate – Josh Brownhill – is on Johnson’s radar having rejected a new deal at his parent club Deepdale.
