BARNSLEY boss Mark Robins has been casting his eye over two promising youngsters.

Speaking exclusively to The Star, Robins revealed he has been having a close look at Aston Villa’s Harry Forrester and Fulham’s Matthew Reece.

Attacking midfielder Forrester, 20, played for the Reds’ reserve team in a 4-0 South Yorkshire derby victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

And the former Watford player, who Villa snapped-up for £250,000 as a 16-year-old back in 2007, has been training with the Reds’ first team, with a possible move lined-up in the summer.

Forward Reece, meanwhile, has played a few games for the Reds’ Academy team and scored four goals in two games.
