Skysports.com understands Barnsley are poised to seal a summer swoop for Aston Villa youngster Harry Forrester.

Robins: Forrester interest

The young forward looks set to leave Villa Park in the summer and the Tykes have moved quickly to secure his services.

Forrester has impressed during his time with the Midlands outfit's academy and reserve sides and is now poised to be given the opportunity to continue his career with the Championship side.

Oakwell boss Mark Robins has invited the talented and versatile attacker to join the South Yorkshire side for training ahead of his expected switch at the end of the season.

Forrester has been capped at youth level for England and has featured alongside the likes of Nathan Delfouneso for Villa's second string.
