Transfer Gossip: Bolton Wanderers to Sign Barnsley Playmaker

The transfer window is not yet open, but it seems that Lenny has his targets in mind already

Rumours persist that Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon fancies the look of Barnsley's Conor Hourihane.

The 24 year old Irishman moved to Oakwell for £200,000 from Plymouth Argyle in 2014, and has impressed scoring 14 goals from 53 appearances for the Yorkshire outfit.

With Wanderers being so short of goals from midfield, it comes perhaps as no surprise that Hourihane has caught Neil Lennon's eye.

He also 'assisted' (I hate myself for using that word) 15 times last season, which isn't too far from Bolton's midfield with their collective 'assist' (stupid word) total of TWENTY FIVE for the entire season.

Hourihane has tasted international football too, having represented the Republic of Ireland at under-19 and under-21 level. The lad also spent time at Sunderland and Ipswich Town before making his way to Barnsley via Plymouth.

He capped off a memorable season with Barnsley's Player of the Season award, so well done to him for that.
