“If he moves, I just hope he goes somewhere he’s going to play,” Baraclough told The Scottish Sun about Moult.

“There are clubs in the Championship where he could pick up a great wage but be third- or fourth-choice striker.

“I don’t think that’s going to do him any good. He should be going somewhere he’d be a first or second-choice striker.”
