BARNS­LEY boss Lee John­son has warned his play­ers that the Tykes are go­ing to be ‘ruth­less’ in lining up play­ers for next term.

John­son, 33, took over from Danny Wil­son in Fe­bru­ary af­ter leav­ing Old­ham and en­joyed a suc­cess­ful start. But Barns­ley’s play-off chal­lenge has faded away in re­cent weeks af­ter a run of poor re­sults.

John­son said: “We’re ac­tu­ally go­ing to be quite ruth­less with our re­cruit­ment for next sea­son.

“There’s a lot of good play­ers in the mar­ket, so we’re not go­ing to leave any of­fers open for too long. Over the next week to ten days we’re go­ing to look at con­tracts and new play­ers.”
