George Moncur will be allowed to leave Colchester United this summer following the club's relegation from League One, according to Sky sources.
Sky sources also understand Barnsley and Peterborough have made contact over a deal for the midfielder and the Tykes will hold talks with him later this week.
MK Dons have also renewed their interest in Moncur, while Swindon are understood to be keen on a deal for him.
The 22-year-old joined Colchester on loan from West Ham in August 2014 before making the move permanent three months later.
He scored 14 times in 51 matches during the 2015-16 season, taking his goalscoring tally for the club to 23 in 97 appearances.
