Barnsley consider move for former star Adam Hammill

Barnsley FC - Oakwell Stadium

HITC Sport understands Barnsley could offer Adam Hammill a return to Oakwell.

Former Liverpool youngster Adam Hammill could be set for a return to Barnsley as he looks for a new club, HITC Sport understands from sources close to a potential deal.

Hammill is currently a free agent after cancelling his contract at Huddersfield Town by mutual consent on transfer deadline day earlier this summer.

The 27-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at Liverpool, opted to cancel his contract early at Huddersfield as he seeked a new club to kickstart his career.

A number of clubs have expressed an interest in the skilful winger and he has linked up with former club Barnsley for training as he looks to try and win a deal at the League One club.

Hammill initially joined Barnsley on loan in February 2009 before making the move permanent the following summer.

The former England Under-21 international impressed at Oakwell and his form saw him win a move to the Premier League with Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2011.

Hammill then joined Huddersfield Town from Wolves in June 2013 after an initial successful loan spell at the club.

Barnsley boss Lee Johnson is desperate to bolster his squad after losing their last seven League One games and being dumped out of the FA Cup by Altrincham on Saturday.

If Hammill impresses during his stint at Barnsley he could be offered a deal at the club as he looks to recapture his best form.
