Domingos Quina's loan deal from Watford to Barnsley has been confirmed.
The Reds submitted the paperwork just before last night's 11pm deadline but had to wait for the autorities to confirm the signing this morning. He will join the squad ahead of tomorrow's home match with Cardiff city.
The 22-year-old winger joins from the Premier League Hornets until the end of the season, having spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Championship leaders Fulham but only starting twice and coming off the bench twice more.
The Portugal under 21 international is Barnsley's second signing of the window, after Amine Bassi arrived earlier yesterday evening.
Striker Obbi Oulare is expected to join Belgian second division club Molenbeek but that deal is also subject to approval.
Head coach Poya Asbaghi told the club website: “We are happy to see Domingos join the club until the end of the season. He is a decorated youth international and we are excited to see him show his talent in a Barnsley shirt.
“This signing provides us with further options in an offensive sense and I hope he proves to be an asset between now and the season’s conclusion in May.”
Quina added: “I’ve missed being on the pitch and playing football. This is the perfect opportunity for me to come and play and help the team get back to where they should be, so I am really excited and can’t wait to get started. I see myself as an attacking player. I try to run forward and be positive with the ball. I like to dribble and have a shot, but I’ll also work hard and support the team.”
