Barnsley manager Mark Robins is hoping that talented winger Adam Hammill does not leave the club when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.
The former Liverpool man has been one of the Championship's stand-out players this season with a series of eye-catching displays along with a number of long-range specials.
Such has been Hammill's impact at Oakwell that he is being linked with an instant Premier League return with Everton the latest club to join the queue for his services.
David Moyes' side are reportedly lining up a £2million bid for the 22-year-old, an offer that represents a huge mark-up on the knock-down price Barnsley snared him for in the summer.
Robins knows that Hammill is unlikely to be with the South Yorkshire club for the long term, although he hopes for now that he can at least last out the season with The Tykes.
"Hopefully, he will stay with us until he is ready to go somewhere worthy of his talent," said Robins.
