Recently released QPR midfielder Karl Henry has been linked with a move to Championship outfit Barnsley.

According to, manager Paul Heckingbottom is looking to strengthen his side after guiding his team to safety with games to spare last season.

The 34-year-old midfielder was released by QPR boss Ian Holloway last week, and is a player likely to be on the radar of numerous Championship clubs due to his experience and ability to control a game.

It is thought Henry would be brought in to add some muscle to a midfield that is otherwise lacking.

After his departure from Loftus Road was announced, Henry had some complimentary words for the club on Twitter, saying: "QPR is a special football club and i feel privileged to have represented you. I've been fortunate enough to play under a number of excellent QPR managers and coaches and alongside some outstanding footballers. More importantly, I've had the pleasure of working with genuinely nice people on a daily basis."
