Barnsley and QPR are monitoring Hibernian’s Jason Cummings over a potential move according to a report from the Daily Record.
During the summer, the 21-year-old striker was one of the most wanted players in Scotland with both Wolves and Leeds United said to be interested in him. There was even a confirmed bid with Peterborough United making an offer worth £1.7m that was turned down. With the Edinburgh side being worried that more teams could come in for Cummings they got him to sign a new deal which would keep him at the club until 2020.
But despite that new deal, a couple of teams from the Sky Bet Championship are close to making a bid for Cummings. Barnsley fear that they could end up losing their star striker during this transfer window as more and more teams become interested in Sam Winnall while QPR are continuing the rebuild of their squad under returning head coach Ian Holloway and he believes that this young striker could help them to sold the attacking problems they have had all season.
But with Cummings being in such good form for Hibernian, Barnsley and QPR may find it tough to lure him away from Scotland. He has scored 12 goals this season after he scored twice in the big win against Dundee United and with Hibs currently on top of the Scottish Championship, they won’t want to lose any of the players who can help them to return to the Scottish Premiership. But if either Barnsley or QPR can come up with a tempting offer, Cummings could be heading south of the border.
