Reds Look At Novak.

Barnsley are believed to be ready to take a look at former Huddersfield striker Lee Novak.

The 24 year old scored 34 times in 144 appearances for the Terriers from 2009 until his release this past week, including 17 last season when he played a key role in Huddersfield’s promotion from League One via the play-offs.

The Newcastle born man had a tougher season in the Championship, managing just six goals in 39 appearances in 2012-2013 and he came off the bench in the 2-2 draw between Huddersfield and Barnsley on the final day of the season.

The West Yorkshire outfit have decided to end Novak’s four-year spell with the club and David Flitcroft is now looking to bring him in on trial during pre-season.

Novak started out with the now defunct Scottish side Gretna in 2006 and scored five times in 35 games as the Black and Whites won promotion to the Scottish Premier League in 2006-2007.

He really made his name with a move to Newcastle Blue Star in 2007, hitting 29 goals in 2007-2008 which earned a very short move in terms of distance to Gateshead but a big move in terms of plying his trade at a division higher.

16 goals in just 18 games there in 2008-2009 saw Huddersfield snap him up on the 1st July 2009.
