Barnsley are hoping to bring Doncaster winger James Coppinger back to the Championship over the weekend.
Coppinger, who has been at Rovers for over a decade, was part of their team that was relegated from the second tier last season.
With Doncaster keen to reduce their wage bill at the Keepmoat Stadium, the 31-year-old is available and sparking interest from a host of clubs.
Hull City, Ipswich and Nottingham Forest, led by former Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll, have all been linked with a move for Coppinger but Tykes boss Keith Hill is hoping he can get the deal done.
"We've made an enquiry about James and we'll see what happens," Hill told the Yorkshire Post.
"Hopefully, we can do something by the weekend."
