The Football League Paper - - CHRIS DUNLAVY - By Luke Baker

CON­TRACT talks be­tween Barnsley and Josh Scowen are yet to be com­pleted, but the mid­fielder in­sists he’s very happy to re­main at the club.

Scowen started his ca­reer at Wy­combe Wan­der­ers be­fore join­ing Barnsley in Jan­uary 2015 and helped his new club win pro­mo­tion with a play­off fi­nal win over Mill­wall last term.

Barnsley have con­tin­ued their strong form in the Cham­pi­onship this year and the 23-year-old ad­mits he’s happy to play wher­ever boss Paul Heck­ing­bot­tom wants him to.

“Talks are on­go­ing. I am a Barnsley player right now and I will con­tinue to give 100 per cent ev­ery game and then we’ll see what hap­pens in the sum­mer,” Scowen said.

“Of course I have en­joyed my time here. Last year was in­cred­i­ble and this year has been amaz­ing. I am happy here and, if the deal can be struck, that’s great.

“Ev­ery­one knows me, I’ll play any­where.

“I played wide right ear­lier in the sea­son and did quite well, but at QPR I don’t feel it worked out quite as well. Over­all, though, I’m happy with the way I’ve been per­form­ing.

“My po­si­tion is cen­tre mid­field. That’s where I want to be playing and feel I can play my best foot­ball, but if the gaffer picks me to play some­where else I won’t moan.

“I’ll just do it the best I can.”
