HUDDERSFIELD TOWN manager Lou Macari looks set to honour his promise, with the news that he is set to sign defender Adrian Moses from Barnsley for a reported £300,000.

The Terriers boss, who was charged by the FA with 'violent behaviour towards a match official' following his side`s 1-1 draw with Portsmouth, declared that he was looking to bring in defensive cover after losing Chris Lucketti to injury.

Macari will also be without defender Craig Armstrong for one game over Christmas, after he picked up a suspension with his fifth booking at the weekend.

Only last week, Huddersfield allowed right back Steve Jenkins to take a month-long loan spell at Birmingham City, and Moses` versatility will be a major plus for Macari.

The 25-year-old Doncaster-born stopper is equally at home either in the centre or on the right of defence, but he has found his opportunities limited at Oakwell after failing to return to peak form after a groin operation 13 months ago.

Tykes boss Dave Bassett has made it clear that he is looking to cut his squad and, following the weekend 2-0 defeat by Stockport, an angry Bassett said: "Some of my players are going to find that their days are numbered - it's time for new faces."

It is common knowledge that Bassett has an abundance of defensive options at his disposal, which has been the problem facing Moses.

Despite playing against Stockport, Moses` path to a regular first team return has been blocked by the likes of Mateo Corbo, Chris Morgan and Janne Salli, and it now seems that he is going to take a move across Yorkshire to resurrect his career.
