Barnsley manager Mark Robins has confirmed he is hoping to finalise a deal for Lincoln City youngster Kern Miller in the January transfer window.
Skysports.com revealed earlier this month that Barnsley had lined up a deal for Miller, who is shortly due to be out of contract at Lincoln.
The League Two club will be entitled to compensation for the 19-year-old, who has made just one substitute's appearance for the first team.
Robins believes the defender possesses plenty of potential and is optimistic of pushing through a deal for Miller.
"We are hopefully going to do something with Kern Miller but he is a young one with potential and we will see if we can develop him as a player," Robins told the club's official website.
"We are always looking to improve and there is another one in the pipeline and a couple bubbling away under that so we are definitely looking to do something in the window."
