Mirror Claims Reds After Samuel

As revealed on TykesMad on 13th June, speculation is hotting that Barnsley are after Austrian international midfielder Jurgen Samuel. The 23 year old Sturm Graz captain made 1 start and two substitute appearances for the co-hosts at Euro 2008 as they crashed out in the group stages.

And today's Daily Mirror believes a £500,000 deal could be in the pipeline. They report:

BARNSLEY want to sign Austrian international Jurgen Samuel from Sturm Graz in a £500,000 deal.

Reds boss Simon Davey though has this week dismissed these rumours. Whilst admitting the club's scouts are scouring Euro 2008, Davey claims Samuel is not on his wishlist.
