Adam El-Abd: Mulling over a move to Oakwell

The Tykes have made no secret of their desire to get defensive reinforcements through the door at Oakwell.

Boss David Flitcroft has made the acquisition of a new centre-half a top priority and admits to having explored a number of options.

It has emerged that El-Abd is among those on his wish list and that discussions have been held with the 28-year-old regarding a possible move.

Flitcroft is reluctant to speculate on the likelihood of a deal being done, with Barnsley prepared to let the Egypt international bide his time before committing to anything.

On talks with El-Abd, the Tykes manager told the Barnsley Chronicle: "We outlined what the future could look like if he signed and he was positive.

"I want Adam to think intently about the decision because it is a big one.

"He is one of four or five defenders that we have sat down with. We are looking for a centre-back and maybe someone who can play at right-back as well.

"We're just waiting for agents to become more sensible and realistic. We'll spend money but not waste it."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
