And Oakwell sources said Davies, 25, is set to pen a pre-contract agreement with the South Yorkshire club today.

Davies joined Chesterfield on a one-year deal last summer and was offered a new a new one-year deal after the Blues clinched the title in May.

Reading have also been tracking the striker but it is thought he plans to opt for Barnsley because he wants to remain based in the north.

On July 1, Davies is expected to sign a two-year deal with the Tykes.
