Barnsley call off Ward transfer

Jamie Ward
Jamie Ward is Chesterfield's top scorer with 16 goals

Barnsley have pulled out of a deal to sign Chesterfield striker Jamie Ward after the player failed to agree personal terms.

A fee of 400,000 had been agreed for the 16-goal 22-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer.

Barnsley manager Simon Davey told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Jamie would have been great for us but he is unproven at this level and our offer reflected that."

Ward's agent has revealed that the Tykes did not meet his wage demands.

Gino Culbertson said: "Jamie had a figure in mind and unfortunately Barnsley couldn't match that figure.

"It's disappointing but we move on and it's business as usual."
