QPR, Villa, and Nottingham Forest on alert with 24-year-old set for summer exit

Barnsley midfielder Josh Scowen will sign for a fellow Championship club this summer on the expiration of his contract at Oakwell, according to Tykes boss Paul Heckingbottom via The Yorkshire Evening Post.

The 24-year-old moved to Barnsley back in 2015 after impressing for Wycombe Wanderers, and has since gone on to play 108 times for the Yorkshire outfit, netting 12 times in the process.

And last season saw him produce another impressive campaign with two goals and three assists in 41 Championship games, and he even earned the captain’s armband in their final two league games against Burton Albion and Newcastle.

However, it looks like his time at Oakwell is coming to an end having turned down a new contract at the club, and with just eight days left to run on his current deal, manager Heckingbottom is expecting his imminent departure to a fellow second tier outfit.

He said, when asked whether Scowen would be joining another Championship side: ‘I would have thought so, yes.

‘Josh signed his contract here and saw it right to the end and that is great, it is what you want. We were great for Josh and Josh was great for us.’

These comments are sure to put the likes of QPR, Aston Villa, and Nottingham Forest on alert, as the trio are just some of the clubs linked with a move for the 24-year-old in the last few months.

Clearly, Scowen has made quite an impression during his spell at Barnsley to earn such admirers, and whichever Championship side does indeed get a deal over the line for the midfielder will be hoping that he can translate his Tykes form to them when the new season gets underway in August.
