BARNSLEY Football Club have insisted they don't want to sell Jacob Mellis, despite reported interest from Premier League new boys Crystal Palace.

Mellis has another year to run on his contract, but Palace boss Ian Holloway is keen on the playmaker, according to a national newspaper.

But the Reds moved quickly to dismiss the reports and said: "The club has not received any bids for Jacob, nor do we want to sell a player who is an intergral part of the squad."
