Barnsley frustration at Gray deal

Andy Gray

Barnsley manager Simon Davey admits he is frustrated that he has not been able to complete the signing of Charlton striker Andy Gray.

A deal to bring the 31-year-old to Oakwell was agreed three weeks ago, but the current proposed takeover at the Valley is causing a delay.

"The frustrating thing is we are on other people's time scales," Davey told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"I have to decide whether to persevere with it or go elsewhere."

Meanwhile, the Reds will continue to look at Jamaican international O'Neil Thompson until the end of the week.

Thompson is at the club on trial and, having impressed in Saturday's friendly draw against Manchester City, Davey is considering offering him a permanent role at Oakwell.
