Rivals trying to pick Millwall's pocket, says Barnsley boss

BARNSLEY boss Keith Hill believes clubs interested in signing Chris Wood in January are shamelessly trying to capitalise on the hard work of Kenny Jackett.

The likes of Brighton, Leicester City and Huddersfield Town are all looking to take advantage of the striker's transformation during his loan spell at Millwall – and Hill has sympathy for Jackett.

Wood, who spent time on loan with the Tykes last season, is expected to be one of the most sought after players in the division when the transfer window opens in the New Year.



Hill, speaking ahead of his side's trip to The Den, said: "Millwall are having a bit of trouble trying to recruit Wood but Kenny deserves a lot of respect for the work he done with him.

"It looks like other people are trying to pick his pocket – but that's typical. He's done all that work with him on the training ground but now bigger Championship clubs are interested.

"It looks like the demands from West Brom have gone up as well – so Kenny must be banging his head against a brick wall."

    It's so true, Jackett is one of the best managers when it comes to getting players going in the championship, if they don't have the right attitude they are gone, other managers spend big sums and then clearly just expect the players to perform, Jackett makes them perform.
