Mark Robins has continued to strengthen his Barnsley side after bringing in Hull City's Nathan Doyle on a three-month loan.
Doyle becomes the Tykes' second capture this week after Robins snapped up free agent winger Julian Gray.
It has already been a good week for the South Yorkshire side following their fine 3-2 Championship win over Derby on Tuesday.
Doyle, like Gray, goes straight into the Barnsley squad who tackle fellow strugglers Swansea City at Oakwell.
The 22-year-old began his career with Derby and undertook loan spells with Notts County and Bradford before joining Hull City in 2007.
