Barnsley boss David Flitcroft has denied rumours that former England striker Andy Johnson is training with the club and set to play in Friday`s friendly against Club Brugge.

Johnson has spent a large chunk of his career in the Premier League and has played for Birmingham, Crystal Palace, Everton, Fulham and QPR.

He would be a great signing for the reds but he is surely out of our price range with regards to wages.

Flicker has said that he is one striker away from a balanced squad. I would agree with this but I still wouldn`t mind more players coming in if the right ones were available.

What do the readers think? Do we have any chance of landing Johnson? Is Flicker telling the truth with his denial or is he trying to keep it away from the attention of rival clubs?
