Gerhard Struber confirms interest in Barnsley midfielder Mike Bahre

BARNSLEY head coach Gerhard Struber has confirmed that one or two clubs have got in touch about signing former Barnsley captain Mike Bahre - who has been told that he has no future at Oakwell.

Bahre, 25, initially joined the Reds on a season-long loan from Daniel Stendel's former club Hannover just over two years ago and he played a full part in the club's promotion campaign from League One in 2018-19.

His signing was made permanent in the summer of 2019 with the German making 42 appearances for the club in all competitions in that 2018-19 campaign, scoring two goals.

Last term, Bahre made 26 Championship appearances for the Reds in total, having started the 2019-20 season as captain.

But after football resumed after lockdown, Bahre made just one appearance, coming off after an hour in the 1-1 draw at Luton on July 7.

It was his last appearance in a Reds jersey, with Bahre having not been involved so far this season.

Struber said: "We have had an exchange with one or another club about him.

"Mike is clear and he knows that the situation here is difficult and his game in not in my brain or game plan.

"For Mike, it is good when he moves to another club. He has had a good time here and now it is better for everyone, I think, when he moves to a club where he can have game time and he can play football."
