And hope to sign a striker tomorrow.
Local radio is tonight reporting that Barnsley have rejected a bid for full back John Stones from Premier League side Wigan Athletic.
The 18 year old has been heavily courted by Premier League clubs this month with The Reds sticking a £3m price tag on his head. It is believed that struggling Wigan are the first team to actually lodge a bid but it is “well short” of the club’s valuation and has been rejected.
Meanwhile Reds boss David Flitcroft is hoping to sign another striker before tomorrow’s deadline. Flicker has already brought in Jason Scotland on a free transfer this month and he scored within 90 seconds of his debut last night against Millwall! Now the new Reds gaffer is hoping to further lighten the load on Chris Dagnall and Marlon Harewood by bringing in another hitman.
