Barnsley face a battle to keep hold of star striker Craig Davies beyond the January transfer window, Sky Sports understands.

The Wales international has made an outstanding start to the new season with seven goals, including four in their demolition of Birmingham City.

Now the 26-year-old, who is out of contract next summer, is attracting interest from the Premier League as well as some rival Championship clubs.

Sky Sports understands that Stoke, Wigan, Leeds and Leicester are all keeping tabs on Davies.

Davies joined Barnsley in the summer of 2011 on a free transfer from Chesterfield after finishing top scorer in League Two and he hit double figures with the Tykes last term.
