Barnsley manager Keith Hill is hoping to extend the loan deal of Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper David Button until the end of the season.
Button has made five Championship appearances since joining the Tykes last month, but his loan is due to expire after Saturday's game against Cardiff City.
With Barnsley's regular No.1 Luke Steele sidelined due to injury, Hill is looking to keep Button at Oakwell for the final few games of the campaign.
"Luke's definitely out so I'm hopeful we can sign David for longer," Hill told the Sheffield Star.
"As far as I know, they don't want to recall him. David is gaining valuable experience and game-time, so it would be great if could extend his deal."
Following the weekend's meeting with Cardiff, the Tykes round off their season with games against Hull City, Bristol City and Brighton & Hove Albion.
