It has been a superb year to be a Barnsley supporter, hasn’t it?
Having witnessed their side secure an immediate return to the Championship by fighting off fierce competition from Portsmouth, Sunderland and Charlton Athletic to finish second in League One, the Oakwell faithful will understandably be excited to see how the 2019/20 campaign pans out for the Tykes.
Although Daniel Stendel will be confident about his side’s chances of competing next season, if they cannot agree a new deal with Adam Davies over the next few weeks, they may have to find a sufficient replacement for the goalkeeper.
An outstanding shot-stopper, the 26-year-old was one of the best players in the third tier last season and therefore would prove to be a big loss for Barnsley.
However, if he does leave the club, the Tykes could focus on trying to bring one of the most exciting prospects in non-league football to the club.
According to HITC, the Yorkshire-based side are amongst a host of clubs who are reportedly tracking AFC Fylde ace Jay Lynch whose current contract at Mill Farm runs out next month.
After experiencing a hugely impressive season in the National League last season in which he conceded just 44 goals in 48 appearances and kept an impressive total of 20 clean sheets, the former Accrington Stanley ace seemingly has all the ingredients needed to thrive at a higher level and therefore could be somewhat of a coup if Barnsley can secure his signature.
Having missed out on promotion to League Two last week after his side lost 3-0 in the play-off final to Salford City at Wembley Stadium, it may be worth the Tykes taking a risk on the 26-year-old when the transfer window opens in July.
What do you think Barnsley fans? Should Stendel target a move for Lynch if Davies leaves in the summer? Or is there another keeper that you think your club should be targeting? Let us know below.
