Barnsley have made an approach for Charlton Athletic striker Andy Gray.

Tykes boss Simon Davey is keen to bolster his attacking options and has targeted a move for former Sheffield United and Burnley ace Gray.

Charlton are believed to be willing to listen to offers for Gray as they look to trim their squad following their relegation from the Championship.

Addicks boss Phil Parkinson has confirmed both clubs are in talks regarding Gray.

"There's been an enquiry from Barnsley for Andy Gray and we're in discussions," Parkinson told the South London Press.

Meanwhile, Parkinson insists he is determined to hold onto midfield stars Jonjo Shelvey and Nicky Bailey next season.

Teenage starlet Shelvey has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs after bursting onto the scene towards the end of last term.

And former Southend midfielder Bailey has also attracted interest from elsewhere after hitting 12 goals and being named Charlton's player of the year.

But Parkinson says the pair are vital to his side's chances of bouncing back to the Championship at the first attempt.

"I want to keep as many players as possible and those two are two of our best players," added Parkinson.

"I need to fill holes rather than create other ones."
