Barnsley have today made a statement regarding recent speculation over a possible takeover of the club.

The statement reads:

‘From time to time the owner of Barnsley Football Club, Mr Patrick Cryne, receives unsolicited approaches to buy the club, which has led to speculation about a takeover.

‘These are referred to his advisors to evaluate whether they have the necessary substance to develop the Club going forward and that the prospective buyer`s objectives can be met without comprising the ethos of the club.

‘To date, offers have not met these criteria. No offers are being evaluated at present and the focus of everyone connected with the Club is on improving our league position without distraction`.
