Since joining Barnsley from Plymouth in 2014, Conor Hourihane has progressed to become the club's most important player.
Last season, he captained Barnsley at they won promotion from League One along with lifting the Johnstone Paint Trophy at Wembley.
This season, he has hauled Barnsley to eighth in the Championship, contributing five goals, including a stunning winner at the weekend against Nottingham Forest, and also 11 assists - the most in the Championship this season.
The Corkman's excellent form has attracted attention with Sunderland and Aston Villa linked in recent weeks, the latter most strongly with Steve Bruce rumoured to be considering a bid this month.
Hourihane is out of contract this summer. After the weekend's win against Forest, he was coy on his future.
I am a Barnsley player as it is. I have got a contract until the end of the season and I will see where it takes us.
I am concentrating on my football at the moment and will let what I do on the pitch do my talking.
Barnsley fans clearly want their captain to remain at Oakwell.
One fan has started a petition on Change.org - which currently has nearly 600 backers - to make it illegal for the club to sell Hourihane 'to any other football club for any fee'.
