Skysports.com understands that Barnsley have lined up deals for Manchester United's Danny Drinkwater and Middlesbrough's Cameron Park.
The Tykes are looking to bolster their midfield, and they are closing on deals for the highly-rated duo of Drinkwater and Park.
21-year-old United midfielder Drinkwater already has extensive Football League experience having spent time on loan at Huddersfield, Cardiff and Watford in recent years.
It is believed United have agreed to let Drinkwater move to Oakwell on an initial deal up to Christmas, at which point they would review it.
Boro are also set to allow 19-year-old Park to gain some first-team experience in South Yorkshire, having only made a handful of appearances so far in his fledgling career.
The left winger has been touted as the next big thing on Teesside, following in the footsteps of Stewart Downing and Adam Johnson, and has already been the subject of interest from Liverpool in the last 12 months.
Despite the Premier League interest, Park signed a new long-term deal at Boro in December.
