Barnsley supporters may be perched behind their sofas tomorrow evening as the clock ticks down to 11pm and the closure of the transfer window.
With the club enjoying a stunning turn of form, winning each of their past six matches to move within five points of the playoffs, there are rumours circling viciously about the future of star striker Sam Winnall.
The 25 year old’s 88th winner at Swindon yesterday was his 15th league strike of the season and his NINTH in SIX games and The Reds have already had to bat away one approach.
It was confirmed yesterday that Championship outfit Leeds United had made what Barnsley head coach Lee Johnson described as a “poor” offer of £300,000 for League One’s second top scorer which was quickly rejected.
Johnson refused to put a price on his prized asset’s head but Leeds manager Steve Evans has claimed he will NOT come back in with a higher fee, calling the £300,000 bid as “fair”
However Leeds are not believed to be the only suitors of Winnall and if he is still a Barnsley player come 11pm tomorrow, it will feel like a new signing has walked into Oakwell.
