Sky Sports understands Barnsley are poised to sign Manchester City youngster Alex Nimely on loan.
Barnsley boss Keith Hill has been looking to bolster his attacking options and he has agreed a deal until January for the highly-rated forward
The 21-year-old enjoyed two spells out on loan at Middlesbrough and Coventry last season with the player well down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium.
City are happy to loan out Nimely again so that he can gain some valuable first-team experience and get some action under his belt.
Nimely is set to go straight into the Barnsley squad for this weekend's clash with Huddersfield.
