BARNSLEY will not be trying to sign Leicester City striker Steve Howard or Manchester United youngster Nick Ajose.

The Reds were yesterday linked with 35-year-old hitman Howard and 19-year-old winger Ajose, but The Star understands that both players are not on new manager Keith Hill’s radar.

With most of the current Reds squad taking a well-earned summer break, Hill is hopeful of recruiting players ahead of pre-season training.

Colchester United midfielder David Perkins could be Hill’s first signing at Oakwell.

Perkins, aged 28, was bought by Hill for just £6,000 from Morecambe in 2007 and was a key player in the Rochdale side which reached the League Two Wembley play-off final.
