Reds may move again for ex-inmate

Have your say

BARNSLEY boss Keith Hill has revealed he might try to resurrect a deal to sign former Manchester City striker Kelvin Etuhu.

Hill had been in contact with free agent Etuhu - who was released from jail last month - and the player’s agent regarding a potential move to Oakwell.

Etuhu has not played professional football since his incarceration for assault, but Hill was looking to offer the 23-year-old a lifeline to get his career back on track.

Hill said: “Kelvin’s a player I like, I might look at whether we can do something with him. But at the moment I haven’t done any following up from the last time we spoke to his agent.

“We’ve been in Spain for the last week with the squad and my attentions have been on making sure the players worked hard.

“But the squad is still pretty threadbare and I’d still like to sign two new players.

“I’m not going to tie myself down to any specific areas, but we could strengthen up front. It’s all about whether players are available and whether they want to come here and work hard.

“The good thing for me is that we haven’t picked any injuries up on our trip, so it gives me a full complement to select from when we play Hibernian tomorrow.”

Hill has stressed he’s in “no rush” to appoint a club captain, with a number of contenders y in the frame.
