Hammill has been one of the stand-out performers in the Championship this season and has attracted interest from a host of clubs.

Blackpool have already made a bid for the 22-year-old, while the likes of Cardiff, Nottingham Forest, Wigan and Wolves are also monitoring the former Liverpool youngster.

The wide man has a £500,000 release clause in his contract and Tykes boss Robins appears resigned to Hammill leaving Oakwell.

Hope

Robins told the Sheffield Star: "I don't think there is any chance of keeping Adam.

"It's out of my hands. If he does move, then so be it and we'll look to do something different. However we'll hope that he sees sense and he stays with us.

"There has been interest from one or two clubs, but that's out of my control now.

"If he decides to leave and a club come up with the right money I guess he will go and speak to them."
