Simon Davey has refused to confirm that Barnsley have agreed a transfer fee for Blackpool's Keigan Parker.
The Tykes are reportedly discussing personal terms with Parker after having an offer of £200,000 accepted by Blackpool.
However, Davey is not prepared to talk about Parker until his move has been completed.
"It's all speculation and until anything is signed and sealed we're not going to comment on anything," he explained.
Meanwhile, Davey is expected to try and bring Jon Macken, Lewin Nyatanga and Anderson De Silva back to Oakwell.
All three players have returned to their parent clubs, but Davey will be contacting Derby with a view to hiring Macken and Nyatanga for second loan spells and Everton to enquire about the availability of De Silva.
The Brazilian midfielder has impressed during two separate loan spells at Barnsley this season.
