Barnsley have agreed to sign midfielder Stevie Mallan from St Mirren on a three-year deal.
The 21-year-old, who came through the Paisley side's academy and played over 100 times for the Scottish club in all competitions, scoring 29 goals, will head south to Yorkshire this summer.
Mallan told the Barnsley website: "I am very excited to take the next step in my career. Something I always wanted to do was come down to England to try and make myself better.
"I definitely feel like Barnsley was the right choice to make so I am excited to get working with all the other boys.
"I have seen them come up from League One and finish 14th, which is an amazing achievement, so I am looking forward to getting started and hopefully adding to the squad."
Tykes manager Danny Heckingbottom said: "I am really pleased that Stevie can see his future at Oakwell. He has had some real admirers looking at him which we have managed to fight off and bring him here.
"He's a young, stylish midfielder who loves to pop up and get a goal so I think the fans will be excited to watch him."
