Falkirk's Darren Barr has attracted interest from clubs in England and Scotland.
Falkirk defender Darren Barr has attracted interest from clubs in England and Scotland, according to manager John Hughes.
The 21-year-old has only broken into the Falkirk starting line-up this season but has already been talked about as a future Scotland international.
He again impressed in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Celtic and Hughes says there has been interest, even though Barr is contracted to Falkirk until the summer of 2009.
"Darren is outstanding. He's whole-hearted, listens to everything you say and his performance on Sunday showed you what he is all about," praised Hughes.
"Is he big enough to be an out-and-out centre-half? He certainly jumps his height, but possibly right-back could be his best position.
"He's tied up on a long-term contract but he won't be with me for long, because there has been interest actually.
"I have to be honest, the phone has rang a few times. One call from a club in Scotland, two from down south.
"He's still got a lot to learn, but is committed to the cause and is a winner."
