08 October 2007 01:10
Barnsley manager Simon Davey has rubbished reports claiming midfielder Brian Howard has submitted a transfer request. The 24-year-old has featured in all of the Tykes' ten Championship matches this season, but weekend reports claimed the former Southampton trainee was looking to quit Oakwell. "Brian has not - in any way - requested a transfer," Davey told the club's official website. Howard himself added: "I signed a two-year contract in the summer and I'm going nowhere. "My future's here at Barnsley - you can't pay any attention to what you read in the papers."
