|Transfer market hots up as the reds sign young Nigerian striker Onome Sodje from York City on a free transfer. Reject bids for Anderson, and have initial bid for Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam rejected.|
Sodje is a non league player, and the hope is Davey has uncovered a gem rather than another Odejayi in what is seem by York City as a shock transfer, the shock being that York City had done a lot behind the scenes to stop Sodje being deported back to Nigeria, so his transfer to Oakwell, has hit them for six, with any compensation not likely either.
He impressed at Oakwell a couple of years back when York City played the reds in a pre season friendly, his pace and direct on goal approach causing a the reds lots of problems, and obviously a few notes were made as one to watch out for. Now he's with the reds, lets hope with the increased power that age brings, that he can play a big part for the reds this season. All the best Onome from BFCweb.co.uk team, and all reds fans out there.
Meanwhile, the reds have turned down what they describe as a "decent" offer and an improved offer from Bristol City for highly-rated Brazilian midfielder Anderson De Silva.
Simon Davey says the 26-year-old has attracted interest from the Robins for a couple of weeks but their bid did not match Barnsley's valuation.
Davey told BBC Radio Sheffield: "We've given them a figure and they'll come back or not come back.
"At the moment, it's not right for the club to sell Anderson."
We signed De Silva from Everton at the beginning of last season after he had spent a very influential first year on loan at Oakwell. And it seems that Davey has put a large price tag on the player in order to keep him at Oakwell, or be substantially rewarded should he leave the club.
Simon Davey has had a bid rejected for Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam.
Adam had a loan spell at Blackpool last season and Reds boss Simon Davey is believed to be a big admirer.
"He did very well at Blackpool, played very well against us. What he would bring to the squad is a winning mentality," Davey said.
"They turned the bid down and there's a price we won't go over so we have to find the right price."
Heinz Mullers transfer to Bundesliga club FSV Mainz 05 has been finalised with a £600,000 transfer fee.
A good bit of business by Barnsley for the German keeper joined Barnsley for £150,000 from Norwegian club Lillestrom in August 2007.
He enjoyed an impressive start to his Barnsley career, but then suffered a serious knee injury later that season and lost his place to Luke Steele, he got back the No1 spot last year but lost his way towards the end of season, with many mistakes that led to lost points for the reds in the relegation fight.
"It's a good deal for the club and for the player and we wish him well," said Barnsley manager Simon Davey.
"Heinz has been given the opportunity to play in the German top flight and it was the right deal for Barnsley," he added on the Barnsley website.
