Barnsley have told striker Tom Bradshaw that he can leave the club in the summer, according to Sky Sports News.

The TV channel report that Reading are leading the race for the 25-year-old, but the Birmingham Mail believe that both us and the Leeds United could also retain an interest.

The forward’s contract expires in 2019, and it is believed the Tykes want to recoup some of the £600k transfer fee they paid Walsall for the player back in 2016.

Despite playing for a struggling team in the Championship this season, the Welsh international has scored 10 goals in all competitions.

Our top scorers, Che Adams (7), Sam Gallagher (7) and Lukas Jutkiewicz (5) have all failed to reach double figures this campaign. However, it is not known whether Garry Monk would look to make a move for the striker.

The manager has insisted any decisions on recruitment will have to wait until after our Championship status is secured for another season.

  • Looks like you will be leading the line KRO. i’m really looking forward to hearing about every player who’s contract is up who you think would be a good fit for Blues.

  • Good call Gazel. Let’s look for 3 points at QPR which will enable us to really get to grips on looking for a proven goal scorer. KRO

  • Too right Pods. We must get safe first and please Blues no nerve wracking moments tomorrow.Last thing I need now is tension gripping final minutes with other results going against us! Just keep our shape and if we cannot win then come home with a point.

  • This is the 3rd time I’ve heard Bradshaw linked to Blues, is it purely 2 and 2 making 5, or is there a genuine interest ?
    G M’s right not to be drawn on his transfer plans, but I’m sure he’s already drawn up his list of targets, or even two lists, in the unlikely event we do lose our Championship status, which I don’t see happening, but the likes of Bradshaw, McBurnie and probably Maddison will probably be the type of players he’ll more than likely be looking at.
    He’s certainly got his work cut out with the ins and outs he’s got to oversee, but, I’m sure, this time, he’s the man to get it right. There’s one thing for sure, it’s going to be an interesting close season.

    In Garry I trust. KRO

  • Should safety be earned and assured today,I am sure we will see a different Monk.Since his arrival he has been seen as calm,thoughtful and fair minded. To bring his entire back room staff in from day one and to assess players ‘beneath the surface’ at the club encourages me to believe he will have a determined way of who stays at the club.My belief is that younger players will quickly be introduced and providing we are now clear of FFP then the signings will be for replacements for Gardner,Keifenbeld,Juke,Grounds and Roberts. Since Monk’s arrival we have seen a turnaround albeit not spectacular in results but in overall belief and confidence.Skill factor not so much.However this surely must be down to the work at Wast Hills unlike recent predecessors and one in particular who never took to the facility.

  • It’s been obvious for the last 2 years we need 3 players.A creative midfielder who can pass, a £10 million plus striker who can score regularly and another full back.£20 million spend in summer.Get rid of the dead wood and I believe we will have a team who can challenge for top 6 place.Its not rocket science you can see the problem every week and I think Monk will address these 3 areas.

  • Not angry but disappointed is the only way to put it after the QPR game.For me this league has always been too tough for us and yesterday proved yet again that we don’t have the players to consistently deal with it. Holloway before the game did us a great favour by playing four youth and one fairly untried goalkeeper-yet we couldn’t overcome. Next weekend against Fulham we must keep the score down as although Bolton have a minus 4, this could be evens if they beat Forest 2-0 and we concede 2 against Fulham. Draw for us of course will be golden.Grounds must return along with Dean and Keifenbeld just to stop a goal glut.My team Therefore would be:- Stockdale,Colin Dean Morrison Grounds,Davis Keifenbeld Gardner ,Jota Juke,Maghoma. Adams on bench. As negative as many will point to,this team is designed to lose 0-1 purely on the goal difference issue which is absolutely on the cards,make no mistake.
