Barnsley striker Sam Winnall could be the subject of a January bid from promotion hopefuls Leeds United, according to The Daily Mail.

The Whites have taken a look at the forward already this season but will face stiff competition from the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, who have reportedly submitted a £450,000 offer.

Brentford and Huddersfield Town are also said to be monitoring the situation as clubs look to reinforce their attacking options during the transfer window.

Winnall joined Barnsley in 2014 following a successful season with Scunthorpe United in League One.

He was part of the Tykes side that won promotion to the Championship via the play-offs in 2016, scoring 21 league goals during that campaign.

The 25-year-old has transitioned well since making the leap to England’s second-tier and has already notched 11 league goals this term, including four in his last four matches.

It is no surprise that there is interest in the powerful forward, with Leeds in particular actively looking to bolster their resources up front.

The two clubs come head-to-head on January 21 at Oakwell and many will now be wondering who the former Wolverhampton Wanderers hit-man will be lining up for.
