Alex Mowatt: Barnsley eyeing a move for the Leeds star

According to reports, Barnsley are interested in Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt.

The 22 year old is reportedly being tracked by the Championship side as a possible replacement for Conor Hourihane.

As reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post:

“Barnsley are interested in Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt, the YEP understands.

The South Yorkshire club have targeted Mowatt as part of a wider rebuilding process following a spate of departures from Oakwell. Mowatt scored for Leeds against Cambridge United in the FA Cup third round Barnsley lost striker Sam Winnall to Sheffield Wednesday in the first fortnight of the January transfer window and midfielder Conor Hourihane and defender James Bree have both joined Aston Villa since Leeds’ 3-2 defeat at Oakwell last Saturday.

United head coach Garry Monk said at the start of this month that no members of his senior squad would leave before the window closed and Mowatt has played 20 times this season, despite occupying a relatively peripheral role.”
