Barnsley have agreed a deal to sign Liverpool midfielder Herbie Kane, according to reports from Football Insider.
The Tykes are looking to add another midfielder to their squad before the transfer window closes this afternoon, having had another bid rejected for Doncaster Rovers’ Ben Whiteman.
Barnsley now look set to turn their attention to another midfielder, though, with the club reportedly reaching an agreement to sign Liverpool’s Herbie Kane.

Kane is way down the pecking order at Anfield, and has made only two first-team appearances for Liverpool since progressing through the ranks on Merseyside.
The 21-year-old spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan in League One with Doncaster, scoring four goals and registering seven assists as they reached the play-off semi-finals.
The midfielder also endured a loan spell in the Championship last term, reuniting with Grant McCann and joining Hull City on loan in January, scoring two goals in nine games for the Tigers.
Another move to the Championship now looks to be in the offing for Kane, with his first-team opportunities at Liverpool looking very limited indeed.
This is a good move for Kane.
The 21-year-old needs regular game time at this stage of his career, and a move to Barnsley will see him play week in, week out.
They play good football and his technical ability on the ball would really suit Barnsley’s style of play. Whoever does replace Gerhard Struber in charge will look to get the best out of him.
