Barnsley continue to impress in League One with Daniel Stendel’s side in fourth place in the table, well in touch with early pace-setters Portsmouth ahead of the visit of Southend at the weekend.
Stendel has got his squad performing well with a free scoring style built on a solid foundation at the back, but this level of performance will not have gone unnoticed by larger clubs, looking to pick up a League One bargain in the January transfer window.
Barnsley have in 24-year-old midfielder Brad Potts, a player who when on form, is one of the most influential players in the division.
So, should the Tykes be concerned that there may be serious interest in the player come January?
I’ve seen this boy in the flesh and he is quite simply spectacular when he’s on form.
He’s creative, tricky and plays with a real confidence and zest.
Teams would be silly not to pay interest, but I’d always advise caution. Barnsley look to be on the right track and six more months impressing wouldn’t hurt.
He is without a doubt one of League One’s biggest talents and has been one of the standout players for Barnsley this term, too.
There will be a plethora of Championship clubs lining up to snap up the 24-year-old.
With five goals in 12 matches from midfield, he is a player with a rare quality about him able to score from the middle of the park, and if the trend continues he could be on for 15 goals this term.
His goal record means that he is sure to be attracting interest in January.
Potts has been in excellent form for Barnsley this season and he will be key to their promotion battle this year.
With five goals already to his name, he sure to be attracting interest from Championship clubs who will be looking to add depth to their squads in January.
I’d be worried if I was Stendel.
There’s bound to be interest in Potts in January.
He’s been at the centre of Barnsley’s impressive performances this season and is only 24.
Rotherham or one of those teams could be a good move for him.
