Skysports.com understands Hull City midfielder Nathan Doyle is poised to join Barnsley on a permanent basis.

Barnsley have had an undisclosed offer for the 22-year-old accepted by Hull and Doyle has passed a medical at Oakwell.

He has also agreed a two-and-a-half year contract with the Tykes, where he spent three months on loan earlier in the season.

Doyle made 11 appearances during his initial stint with Mark Robins' side and is now on the brink of rejoining the Championship club.

Since signing for Hull three years ago from Derby, Doyle has made just 14 first-team appearances and will be looking forward to playing regular football back at Barnsley.
