Millwall could wrap up a deal for Barnsley striker Tom Bradshaw as soon as this week, according to a report from the Sheffield Star.

The Reds suffered relegation back to League One last season and now they look set to lose their star striker to the Lions.

The Welsh international netted on 12 occasions for the Tykes last season, but his goals could not save the Yorkshire club from the drop.

Millwall boss Neil Harris had said that he wanted to strengthen his attacking options in the transfer window and they are edging ever closer to signing Bradshaw.

The Londoners had a superb second half of the season last campaign but relied heavily on Steve Morrison and Lee Gregory to provide the goals at The Den.

It is understood that Neil Harris’ side are in advanced talks with the Welsh international as they look to wrap up a deal by the end of the week.

Reading and Hull have also shown an interest in the striker, so the Lions want to get a deal done as quickly as possible to fend off interest from their Championship counterparts.

Bradshaw has already netted three goals in two games for Barnsley during pre-season and they will be desperate to keep him, but that looks highly unlikely.

He joined Barnsley for an undisclosed fee in 2016 after his transfer request was accepted by then Walsall boss Jon Whitney.

He now has just one year left on his current contract with the club and Barnsley are now keen to cash in rather than losing him on a free next summer.

Millwall will be looking to mount another Playoff charge next season and Bradshaw’s added goals could be enough to help push them in to the top six.
