Winger and Keeper Next Priority

Winger and Keeper Next Priority

After landing Mido and Mellis this week, Barnsley boss Keith Hill said next on his list of priorities was a Goalkeeper and left winger.

The goalkeeping area is a bit short following the summer release of David Preece so Hill is stepping up his search for someone to come in as back up to Luke Steele.

He would also like another winger to provide competition for places in the squad. He also hasn`t given up hope of landing Nile Ranger from Newcastle but that is no longer a top priority following the signing of Mido.

A centre half is still a priority but it must be the right man. Hill has plenty to choose from as it stands and won`t bring one in just for the sake of it. It has to be someone who will slot straight in to the team and bring experience and leadership skills.
