Championship clubs considering summer move for Barnsley winger

Barnsley winger Ryan Hedges produced a man of the match performance on his full international debut for Wales on Wednesday night, the sort of form that is reportedly stirring interest in the player from Championship Clubs.

HITC Sport is suggesting that several clubs in the top tier of the EFL are eying a move for the talented twenty-three-year-old.

Hedges has been an integral member of the Barnsley squad that has risen to second place in the League One table, making nineteen appearances in all competitions, contributing three goals.

He is out of contract in the summer and has yet to agree on a new deal at Oakwell.

Hedges performance for Wales in the 1-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago further enhanced his growing reputation, which according to HITC has also piqued the interest in clubs north of the border.  Scottish Premiership clubs would not need to pay any compensation for the Welshman if he moved north in the summer.

Scouts watching the Wales game would undoubtedly have been impressed with the former Swansea man who joined Barnsley in January 2017. He has made over fifty appearances for the Tykes and is rated highly at Oakwell.

Our View

Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel will be keen to keep hold of Hedges, but if the report is correct, he will have a fight on his hands.

The best way the Tykes can attract Hedges to stay at Oakwell is by securing Championship football next season.

However, some of the bigger clubs in the Championship will be able to offer much better terms, meaning even if Barnsley do get promoted it might be difficult for them to hold on to the Welsh international.
