Transfer window watch update: Leeds confirm interest in Barnes

Leeds are waiting to pounce if Ashley Barnes decides not to join Burnley

Leeds are waiting to pounce if Ashley Barnes decides not to join Burnley

Albion striker Ashley Barnes is at the centre of a tug-of-war for his services with two Championship rivals.

Leeds manager Brian McDermott has confirmed their interest in snatching Barnes from under the noses of Burnley.

McDermott, speaking earlier today, said: "We have an interest. Another club are talking to him but we have an interest at this stage."

Burnley boss Sean Dyche said earlier this afternoon that Barnes was undergoing a medical at Turf Moor.

It is unclear whether the outgoing Albion marksman is intent on completing the move or whether there could be a late change of plan.

Personally I'll be sad to see digger go. Hopefully Leeds and burnley can get in a bidding war though and bump up the fee :)

So much going on today--getting a bit silly, be a bit unfair on Burnley if ultimately he went to Leeds. My money would be on Burnley---pointless having a medical at Burnley if his mind was not made up. Good luck to Ashley wherever he goes BUT please do not score against us!!!

Willian had a medical at Spurs before signing for Chelsea, so it's not a binding contract or anything.

For me, Leeds would be his better option. Bigger club for starters. Possibly, right now, he is more likely to play for them too. McDermott's teams are likely to play to Ash's strengths too.

Whichever way, odds on him scoring against us this season?!

The fee is already agreed, so whichever team he joins, will not affect that, only his own package possibly

Burnley or Leeds? Neither will be allowed to play him against us by agreement I am sure will be part of the deal.

I think the only time such an agreement can be made is if it's a loan deal, or am I wrong?

That only works on loans - such agreements are not allowed when buying outright.

I don't think that such a clause has ever been put in a permanent deal, only loans. If another club buy his contract up we have no right to dictate which matches he can or cannot play in.

I'm not a fan of either club that is in for Barnes but I have to say that both have excellent managers.
I'm sure that both BM and SD are excellent to work for.
Which will Ash join? I'm not sure... I think a lot might depend on if Burnley can get him to sign before he gets to talk to Leeds.
If Ash does talk to Leeds then I think he might end up with them because as much as I hate to say it... They are still a very big club.

Good luck either way

Whilst it would be a strange clause to add to a contract of sale, I can't think that there is anything stopping such a clause being added, not if all parties agree.
As far as I know the FA have nothing to do with the details of a sale, other than ensuring that payment is made, (FFP).

You're correct. Once he is a chattel of somebody else they can play him as they want unless there is a Gentleman's agreement not binding in Law.

Personally, don't care who Ash signs for.
We should have offered him a better deal to stay with us, end of.
What does this all say about BHAFC? Selling off our first-teamers? Ash, Bridders to follow...
And in Ash's place getting some guy from Tottenham third team, who Nathan Jones just happened to know from Yeovil Town and Charton. WOW....
Sorry, Bloom, but selling Ash is a big mistake.
Young, Always fit, strong in both boxes, gives 100 per cent every time, and, contrary to the albion whingers, does SCORE and would have scored more if a few so-called fans had got off his back.
Ash, you deserve better and hope you will get better. Good luck, and thank you for your goals, particularly the ones which got us out of League One.
Over and out.

You can put ANYTHING (legal) in a contract as long as both parties agree to it. So technically, it's possible, but highly unlikely - and frankly, so what???

Yes Vegas, I agree. At first when it was pointed out to me that it only applies to loans, I immediately thought to myself ''Well, I got that one wrong''

But after reading your response, I have to aggre that in any sale of a commodity any clause can be written with the agreement of all parties. Provided that is legal of course.

Yes, but it is strictly against FA/League rules and so will never happen.
