Hammill for Wolves as Reds speak

BARNSLEY winger Adam Hammill is expected to join Premier League outfit Wolves today subject to contract terms being agreed.

It was believed the former Liverpool midfielder was heading to Blackpool, but the 22-year-old had a change of heart and instead journeyed to Wolves yesterday to have a medical and to discuss a rumoured new three-year deal worth 16,000 a week.

However, late last night the deal had not been completed, although it is expected to be finalized today.

"Adam is very close to agreeing a deal with Wolves," Reds director Don Rowing told The Star.

"We received a number of offers for Adam, but he's decided that Wolves is the club for him.

"Blackpool and Notts Forest both made official bids, but it's just turned out that Adam wanting to move to Wolves has coincided with the best deal for everyone.

"We were expecting the deal to be finished, but an agreement has been reached and hopefully all the paperwork will be finished soon."

And Reds boss Mark Robins has revealed the Oakwell club are in talks with Bristol City forward Danny Haynes.

With Hammill leaving Robins has understandably been keen to strengthen and he's hopeful of getting Haynes on either a permanent or loan deal.

"We're in talks with Danny and hopefully we can get something tied up," Robins told The Star.

Haynes has had a medical at Oakwell, but Robins was keen for the Hammill deal to be finalised before he recruited a replacement.

Robins added: "I'm working round the clock to bring in some new players, but this transfer window is notoriously difficult."

And Robins has said he won't be forced to "panic" with first-choice centre-halves Stephen Foster and Jason Shackell both suspended for Saturday's home clash with Swansea City.

Bobby Hassell and Nathan Doyle could partner each other in central defence, with Diego Arismendi, who has been nursing a slight injury, expected to return at the weekend.

Hugo Colace could partner Arismendi in the centre of midfield, with Jacob Butterfield and Serbian Goran Lovre offering other midfield options.
