Barnsley assistant manager Dale Tonge has revealed that there has been no further interest in Kieffer Moore, and has insisted that the club have no intention of selling the striker this summer.
Moore was a key player for Barnsley last season and scored 19 goals in 35 appearances in all competitions as Daniel Stendel’s side won automatic promotion to the Championship.
The 26-year-old was linked with a move away from Oakwell earlier in the transfer window, with the Daily Mail reporting last month that both Millwall and Bristol City were interested in signing him.
However, Barnsley assistant manager Tonge has revealed that there has been now further interest in the striker and that the club have no intention of selling him, with just over a week to go until end of the transfer window.

Moore could be involved for Barnsley when the Tykes make their return to the Championship against Fulham in their opening game of the new season at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon.
This is fantastic news for Barnsley.
With just over a week to go until the end of the transfer window, it doesn’t look as though Moore will be leaving Oakwell this summer and that has to be considered a major boost for Barnsley ahead of the new season.
Moore was outstanding for Barnsley in League One last season and now could be the perfect time for him to make an impact in the Championship.
The striker will be full of confidence after last season and will be determined to prove that he’s good enough to succeed in the Championship, following his brief spells in the second tier in the past.
I think he’s capable of scoring goals at this level and I’m expecting him to play another important role for Barnsley this season, as they look to establish themselves in the Championship again.
