Barnsley are braced for a battle to keep Kieffer Moore at the club this summer.

The Star understands the Reds have already knocked back two six-figure sums for the player from Championship clubs.

It is also understood that two other clubs have also made enquiries about securing the striker’s services for next season.

And it is expected more offers will come flooding in for the 25-year-old, who joined Oakwell for £750,000 back in January.

The forward may not have grabbed the goals he was expected to after impressing in a loan spell at Rotherham United earlier in the season.

Moore scored just four times in 20 appearances for the Reds after making the switch from Ipswich Town.

However, playing as the target man and doing a physical job up front allowed star striker Oli McBurnie to flourish without that burden on his shoulders.

The Reds are unsurprisingly keen to keep hold of the player, who has banged in the goals for fun in League One before.

During his time with the Millers he scored 13 goals in 22 League One outings before his loan deal came to an end.

And Moore could be the man to fire the Reds back to the Championship at the first attempt if that form is anything to go by.

Meanwhile, Barnsley have announced life-long fan Ben Mosley as the club’s official artist.

Mosley produced seven paintings for the club’s 130th anniversary last year and has previously been commissioned to create work for Manchester United, McDonald’s and Wembley Stadium.
