Barnsley are closing in on the signing of veteran forward James Norwood.
The 31-year-old has netted almost 200 goals in a career mainly spent in non-league football before scoring 29 in League Two for Tranmere Rovers in the 2017/18 season.
That earned him a move to League One Ipswich and he netted 28 goals in 88 games before his release this summer.
The deal is thought to be in the final stages but has not been finalised yet, the Chronicle understands.
Norwood's signing would be a stark change from the Reds' previous policy of signing only players aged 25 or younger to develop them.
