What a goal from the in-form Irish midfielder...

Conor Hourihane may have signed-off his Barnsley career in style.

Hourihane is out of contract with the Championship club at the end of the season, and has been linked with moves to a number of clubs, from Aston Villa to Celtic to LA Galaxy.

Villa have reportedly offered the 25-year-old midfielder a contract worth four-times as much as his current deal.

If Hourihane does leave Barnsley, he does so giving the club’s fans probably their most enjoyable moment of the season.

In the second-half of the Yorkshire derby game against Leeds United at Oakwell, the midfielder hit a stunning free-kick to give the home side a 3-1 lead.

This is special. Barnsley held-on to win 3-2.

You would imagine Hourihane’s exploits will also gain the attention of Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill.

The midfielder from Cork has been one of the best players in the Championship this season.
