Brian Howard
Brian Howard the former Barnsley captain has stated that wold love a return move to Oakwell as he looks to revive his career this month, and bwin betting are predicting a move back to Barnsley for the 27 year old.

The Bwin review shows that Howard scored 27 goals in 121 games for Barnsley between 2005 and 2008 left the club in controversial circumstances to join local rivals Sheffield United four years ago.

He might be most remembered for his FA cup heroics at Anfield where he scored a last minute winner, leading them to the semi final, as well as being instrumental in the clubs premotion to the Championship in 2006.

Since then though, moves to Sheffield United, Reading and a current loan spell at Millwall who won 3-1 at Oakwell on Saturday, have seen his career stall over the last couple of seasons.

Prior to his return to Oakwell with Millwall on Saturday where he was unable to play due to a delay in his loan with the lions, he expressed his interest at returning to the club permanently:

“I have unfinished business at Barnsley and would love to come back. I already have offers for next season but I’d definitely think about coming back if Barnsley were interested. I feel I’ve never really had the opportunity to say thank you to the fans and I was very upset in the manner in which I left the club."

"Other players were offered new contracts but despite the club always telling me how valued and important I was, they never offered me one. It was a very tough time. I got perceived as the bad man and the Judas, but it wasn’t like that."

"I left Barnsley for footballing reasons because I wanted to have a better chance of playing in the Premiership. I had a great rapport with the fans and my time at Barnsley has been the best of my career. I came back to Barnsley recently and was with Antony Kay and Paul Reid and we were talking about our time together at the club. We were a bunch of lads who did everything together, on and off the pitch and none of us have ever been in a team with such a spirit since.”

It will be interesting to see how Howards future progresses, and if he will indeed become a Barnsley player once again.
