Barnsley move ahead of Hull City in race for Leeds United man

Marcelo Bielsa has given the green light for Leeds United to sell Mallik Wilks this summer, with fellow Championship sides Hull City and Barnsley keen on signing him.

The72 reported earlier today that both the Tigers and the Tykes have made bids to land the 20-year-old and that he has a choice between the two sides.

It has now emerged that Barnsley have moved ahead of Hull in the race to sign him, according to BBC Humberside Sport journalist David Burns on Twitter.

Daniel Stendel’s side have been busy so far in this summer transfer window as they prepare for life back in the Championship next season. The Yorkshire side have brought in the likes of Bradley Collins, Toby Sibbick, Luke Thomas, Mads Andersen, Aapo Halme and Samuel Sahin-Radlinger.

They are now looking to boost their attacking options by seeing off interest from Hull and sign Wilks.

Losing out on the youngster would be a massive blow for the Tigers. Their new boss, Grant McCann, worked with him at Doncaster Rovers last season and he bagged 16 goals under the Ulsterman in all competitions.

Hull are on the lookout for more signings with their only incoming acquisition being goalkeeper Matt Ingram last week. McCann’s side need numerous signings due to their squad being threadbare but continue to suffer blows in the transfer market.

Barnsley will be looking to tie up a deal as soon as possible to sign Wilks.
