Barnsley have signed Austrian centre-back Michael Sollbauer from Gerhard Struber's former club Wolfsberger.
The 29-year-old, who will be the oldest player at the club, joins on a contract until 2022 after an undisclosed fee was agreed.
The deal is subject to international clearance but the Reds are hopeful that Sollbauer can play at Portsmouth in the FA Cup tomorrow and, with almost 250 games in the Austrian top flight, add experience to one of the EFL's youngest squads.
He is the third signing of the window after Marcel Ritzmaier and Kilian Ludewig who have both previously played under head coach Struber in Austria.
