Barnsley are closing in on on their first permanent signing of the January transfer window.

The Reds, who are looking for a right wing-back and possibly another striker, are thought to be close to announcing a new arrival.

So far this window they have brought in Max Watters and Bobby Thomas on loan from Cardiff and Burnley respectively.

Meanwhile, a fringe player is set to join a League One rival on loan for the rest of the season.

Tomas Kalinauskas, the Lithuanian international winger, has moved permanently to Dutch club Den Bosch who are part-owned by Paul Conway and Chien Lee who also have a stake in Barnsley and used to be the Reds’ co-chairmen. He never played a first team game.
