Mallik Wilks’ form at loan club Hull City has impressed Gerhard Struber but his long-term future is unknown.

The forward has scored three goals in eight games for the Tigers, but sat out Wednesday’s match against his parent club for whom he played 16 times before Struber arrived in November. 

Asked if Wilks has a future at Oakwell, Struber told the Chronicle: “We will see. Right now he plays for Hull, he is happy and he has scored.  We will see what is the best situation. I see many games of him.  “He has made a good improvement and this was the right decision for him to go to the other club. 

“He gets gametime and here in Barnsley it is not so easy for him to play. With Browny (Jacob Brown) and Conor Chaplin, we have very good strikers and it is not so easy for him to change his mindset to my gamestyle.  Right now, we have a win win situation. He plays and he can improve his style and this is good for everyone.”
