Beckford for Barnsley?

Whilst Barnsley`s hunt for a striker is set to go underway come July, Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford may well want-away from Elland Road after the Whites failed to escape from the third tier of English football last season.

However, Leeds would definitely want a few bob for the front-man who bagged twenty goals in League One for United.

Yet some Leeds fans have claimed that Beckford is in need of several chances before eventually hitting the back of the net. Despite this claim, the Reds are still in need of a prolific goalscorer and 6ft 2" Beckford may just fit the bill.

Simon Davey has gambled on unproven Championship strikers in the past, and may not be willing to do the same with Beckford, especially after the twenty-five year old`s pitiful display at Wembley in which he failed to deliver the goods on Leeds` most important fixture in years.

Wow. Now that would be a brilliant signing, Barnsley fans. I have to say he would be a decent signing for Ipswich, but Jim doesn't seem to be pursuing him. He would certainly add to your attacking options. There is no doubt as to how good a player Jermaine Beckford is.

You can have the lazy so-and-so, as long as you pay through the nose.

You've got about as much chance of luring Beckford to Oakwell as I have of becoming Fabio Capello's right hand man!!! He's wanted by a host of top clubs and if he's Championship bound will go to 1 of the big 10!!!!
