New rumours come and go with varying degrees of credibility, but it does raise the question of what Barnsley FC fans could expect to see throughout the remainder of the window.

With the summer transfer window now upon us once more, it is that time of year again where fans of all clubs get excited, and potentially a little bit nervous, about what the upcoming months could have to offer. The fixtures have been announced for next season and the preparations are already underway. As the weeks go by, new rumours come and go with varying degrees of credibility, but it does raise the question of what Barnsley fans could expect to see throughout the remainder of the window.
Potential Signings

One of the names seemingly on the radar this summer is Motherwell’s David Turnbull, who scored 16 goals and provided seven assists last season. Barnsley look to have been beaten to his signature by Celtic, as of 21st June, after having an initial bid rejected.

Along with Turnbull, it is yet to be seen as to whether Barnsley would re-enter the hunt for St Johnstone’s Jason Kerr having had a bid rejected for the defender back in January. It has been reported that Kerr has once again become a top target for the Yorkshire outfit, who now have greater funds at their disposal following their promotion from League One. Whilst a deal appears plausible, it is likely that it will take a seven-figure sum, or very close to it, to persuade the Scottish club to sell. They will need to strengthen significantly this summer, according to to the bookmakers, as they are currently favourites to get relegated in the football betting.

Possible Outgoings

Whilst Kerr is one name being linked to come into the defence, Liam Lindsay is attracting plenty of interest from various clubs. Stoke look to have landed his signature with a move almost completed as of 21st June. The Potters are chasing promotion under Nathan Jones - who implemented an exciting style of play at Luton which has helped them achieve consecutive promotions - after a disappointing first season in the Championship.

Kieffer Moore has caught the eye of numerous clubs during his time at Barnsley and the 26-year-old has been linked with a potential move to Bristol City. Having scored 17 goals in last year’s successful League One promotion campaign, it is likely that the Reds will command a large fee for their striker, especially knowing that Bristol City have sold Lloyd Kelly to Bournemouth for £13 million earlier in the window.

Patience is Key

Throughout the duration of the transfer window, many different suggestions will come to the surface with few often coming to fruition. Although some key names are being linked with possible exits from Oakwell, it appears clear that the club will back Daniel Stendel following the club’s promotion from League One.
