Barnsley are on the verge of signing Liverpool winger Adam Hammill on a permanent deal, Tykes boss Simon Davey has confirmed.
Hammill enjoyed a successful loan spell at Oakwell last season and is ready to return to the Championship club, but the unlikely factor of a trip to the dentist has delayed proceedings.
Davey said: "With Adam Hammill we are very close but not signed, sealed and delivered. Unfortunately we have been delayed a little bit because he needs to have his wisdom teeth removed and is having an operation on Monday."
