Barnsley captain Liam Kitching is expected to join Coventry City tonight, the Chronicle understands.

The defender has had a medical with the Championship Sky Blues.

City had several bids rejected for him this summer but are now understood to have agreed a fee - despite chairman Neerav Parekh saying last month the Reds were 'definitely keeping' Kitching.

Barnsley have signed left-back Owen Dodgson on loan from Burnley and are expected to bring at least one more player in before tonight's 11pm deadline.
