Barnsley boss Simon Davey has dismissed speculation linking him with a move for Oldham striker Lee Hughes.

Reports have suggested Davey was interested in signing Hughes as he looks to bolster his attacking options at Oakwell.

Hughes' future at Oldham has been the subject of speculation for some time with the player having a buy-out clause in his contract.

Doncaster have been linked with Hughes, but Davey insists he has no plans to move for the former West Brom hit-man.

"There has been no mention of Lee Hughes and we have not enquired," Davey told the club's official website.

"We are still trying to get players in and have until February 2 to do so, hopefully we will get one but we will have to wait and see what happens.

"We are looking at everything."

Skysports.com understands Coventry striker Michael Mifsud is a target for Barnsley and that they have tabled a bid for the Malta international.

Meanwhile, Davey has been fined £500 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association.

The charge relates to November's South Yorkshire derby with Sheffield United at Oakwell.
