Darlington have reached a deal with Barnsley for the loan of Jamaican defender O'Neil Thompson.
But the Blue Square Premier-bound Quakers, who are managed by former Tykes boss Simon Davey, are yet to hear whether the 26-year old will agree to the switch.
Thompson has been capped 21 times by his country and will make a decision on his future when he returns from a break.
Barnsley director Don Rowling revealed: "We've agreed a loan that looks like it's going to go ahead.
"We've agreed his wages with Darlington."
