Barnsley manager David Flitcroft has denied speculation linking the Tykes with Southampton striker Billy Sharp.
The ex-Doncaster man last appeared for the Saints in August 2012 and spent most of last season on loan at Nottingham Forest.

Rovers boss Paul Dickov confirmed this summer that he
wanted to bring the 27-year-old back to the Keepmoat on loan.
"We want a striker but there has been zero contact with Billy Sharp," Flitcroft told
BBC Radio Sheffield.
"We are actively trying to improve the squad. We're interested in a lot of players and continue to look everywhere."
Meanwhile, Flitcroft confirmed he is still interested in signing Hull City striker Aaron McLean.
Barnsley have been
in discussions with the Tigers since July
and McLean, 30, remains on the transfer list at the KC Stadium.
"The clubs are talking but there's been little progress. There's no deal been struck so we still haven't spoken with Aaron," said Flitcroft.
