Financial details have emerged as Barnsley close in on the permanent signing of Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane.
Barnsley are in the market for a new midfielder, having recently had a seven-figure bid rejected by Doncaster Rovers for Ben Whiteman.
The Tykes are now set to explore other options, with Kane set to depart Anfield and arrive at Oakwell on a permanent basis.

Kane has spent the last two years away from Anfield, spending the 2018/19 campaign on loan with Doncaster.
The midfielder was included in the Sky Bet League One Team of the Season, after scoring four goals and helping Donny reach the play-off semi-finals.
The 21-year-old moved on loan to Hull City in January and reunited with Grant McCann, but was unable to prevent the Tigers from being relegated to the Championship last season.
Kane looks set to secure another move away from Anfield, but this time on a permanent basis, with Barnsley agreeing a £1.25million fee for the midfielder plus add-ons.
As per Goal’s Neil Jones, Liverpool will have a 15% sell-on clause if Kane is to leave Barnsley in the future, with the Tykes beating Luton, Hull and Portsmouth to the player’s signature.
This is a good deal for both parties.
Kane is 21 now, and whilst loan moves can be beneficial for a player’s development, he’s simply never going to get into Jurgen Klopp’s side.
He needs a fresh start and Oakwell could be a good move for him. Barnsley need a new midfielder, and for just over £1million, it’s a solid signing for the Tykes.
