BARNSLEY are reported to have accepted a £500,000 bid from Charlton for top-scoring striker Chris O'Grady.

Last season's relegation rivals are understood to be in contract negotiations with the 28-year-old, although O'Grady's wage demands and reluctance to relocate his family are proving a stumbling block for the Addicks.

Meanwhile, youngsters Nana Boakye-Yiadom, George Marris and Brad Abbott have all signed their first professional contracts with the Reds.

They join promising talent such as Rhys Oates, James Bree, Danny Rose, Reuben Noble-Lazarus and Paul Digby for next season's League One campaign.

"We need to give youth a chance," said boss Danny Wilson. "Let's hope we have a few jewels in the crown next season."

No change at Oakwell then, sell your best players and replace them with maybe's in the hope they may come good so they too can be sold on.!!!

Now that barnsley are league one they will be on tighter budget if a offer comes in and a player wants to leave they can't stop. But if the people of barnsley that slate them week in week out went to watch them and put money over the turnstiles there finances would be better. And same applys for the people that support Man U and city and Chelsea and arsenal but only see the game from there armchairs or there sky sports app and that also slag the club off went and watch a game there maybe oakwell would be full every game and have more money coming. But no there's too many fickle and glory hunting people around here.

Ok deano. And ymml. So bfc hoodwink fans. Or customers into buying season tickets. They expect them to go to oakwell. Why should they ? When the better llayers are sold on. We go (or went) to see good players. And the club sells ln. Why is this clever ? Regardless of budget (incjdently we were promoted to the premiership ) " on a low budget " ?? Im sorry. But after visiting oakwell man and boy enough is enough. What happened this ladt few years form a fans point of view in my opinion could. And should have been avaoided. Hillcroft should never have stepped foot in the place. Then we have wilson. Who i though would have changed the 1 man up front at home tactict ??? Sorry, this was a plan. I dont want to be a part of that plan. Km done. I will never step foot in the place again. Rainbow is right.

Observer **** happens at clubs. Ya rite sum decisions that have been made shouldn't have but all boils down to money. You can't compare these last couple of seasons to when we were promoted its a different ball game players were driven by passion then not money or status. Like deano says if we get to wembley again you will have 35000 tarn fans there compared to the 8000 that attend on a normal game. Oh and a loyal fan would stick by them regardless. Barnsley are a small club that are debt free sticking to the FFP on a small budget. You look at the gate figures from the prem days and now. On match day you have 30000 barnsley fans complaining or cheering but only 8000 are there putting the money in.
