Barnsley manager David Flitcroft says that he has spoken to Brighton defender Adam El-Abd about a possible move to the Tykes.

David Flitcroft has revealed that he has held talks with Brighton & Hove Albion defender Adam El-Abd.

The Barnsley manager has made signing a new centre-half a priority during the current transfer window.

Flitcroft told the Barnsley Chronicle: "We outlined what the future could look like if he signed and he was positive.

"I want Adam to think intently about the decision because it is a big one. He is one of four or five defenders that we have sat down with.

"We are looking for a centre-back and maybe someone who can play at right-back as well. We're just waiting for agents to become more sensible and realistic. We'll spend money but not waste it."

The 28-year-old has spent his entire career at the Seagulls, having joined the club's youth set-up as a 10-year-old in 1994.
