Everton, Wigan target Howard unhappy with Barnsley treatment

Brian Howard is weighing up his future at Barnsley.

The Tykes skipper, 25, has a year left on his Oakwell contract and is a £3m target for Everton, Wigan and Bolton.

Howard, a hero of his side's run to the FA Cup semi-finals, would be happy to stay if Barnsley handed him a double-your-money deal worth £8,000 a week.

But he said last night: "Although they say they want to keep me, nobody at the club has been in touch with me yet to offer me a new contract.

"I am in limbo. I feel I have given great service to this club, and I would like them to recognise that by doing one of two things - either give me the contract I am worth or sell me. And by that, I mean doing me the courtesy of selling me at a realistic price."
