Keith Hill has moved to quash rumours that Danny Haynes is leaving Barnsley this summer, with the manager insisting that the speculation surrounding his star has been created by the press.

Haynes has scored six goals in 24 appearances for Barnsley since joining the club in the January transfer window, and the Englishman has attracted attention from Npower Championship clubs Burnley, Hull, Leicester and Portsmouth as a result.

But Hill believes that the rumours are just that, with no truth to them whatsoever.

"At the moment in time I've not had one enquiry for Danny Haynes, I've just had a lot of speculation," Hill said.

"I've heard a lot in the press, I don't know where the rumours are coming from. But I can assure you no manager has been in touch with me.

"I think it's been unnerving and upsetting Danny, the speculation, because you can't help but see it, read it, feel it.


"It's not helping me, Barnsley Football Club or Danny Haynes because that speculation isn't real."

With just one week to go until the transfer window closes, Hill is no doubt looking forward to August 31st when he can breathe a sigh of relief at keeping Haynes on board.

Barnsley have had a mixed start to the season so far, with the club posting two losses, a draw and a win so far. They currently sit 16th in the Npower Championship table.
