I'm told no new bids in the last few days for any of Barnsley's players, including captain Alex Mowatt. The Reds rejected an approach for him earlier in the window. Millwall interest understood to have cooled. No update on his contract but Ismael will be asked about it tomorrow.

Mowatt got through another 90 minutes last night for the Tykes, but was unable to inspire Ismael’s side to a win over Watford.
Troy Deeney’s first-half penalty was enough to secure Watford a 1-0 victory as they strengthen their grip on a place in the Championship’s promotion race.
As for Barnsley, they sit 10th in the table having collected 34 points so far this season.
There’s always going to be speculation surrounding Mowatt given his form and contract situation.
However, as things stand, it is good news for Barnsley.
Mowatt is a key part of their side, their captain and a big reason why they are where they are in the Championship table.
Ismael will have a desire to retain the 25-year-old this month one way or another.
