Bayern Munich II winger Dale Jennings looks set to make a move to Championship side Barnsley, according to Sky Sports.
Jennings was granted a dream transfer to the Bundesliga giants in 2011 when he signed from Tranmere Rovers after impressing in League 1. But the English gem failed to settle in Bavaria, and Bayern Munich are prepared to let Jennings go on a free transfer, despite impressing in the Bayern reserves.
A number of English clubs were thought to be interested in the skilful playmaker, with Huddersfield thought to be the team most interested in fighting Barnsley for Jennings' signature. But David Flitcroft's Barnsley look to have won the race to sign the former Bundesliga star.
The 20-year-old makes the move to South Yorkshire following Barnsley's struggle to remain in the Championship last season. They avoided relegation on the final day, drawing with local rivals Huddersfield to ensure they stayed up.
And the signing of the young Englishman would be seen as a major coup for the Tykes, who will have been looking for a young player with flair to help them push on next season.
At times last season, The Tykes relied too much on players like former Chelsea midfielder Jacob Mellis, with the youngster the only player to seemingly provide a sense of flair in the Barnsley team.
So the signing of Jennings will surely help the Tykes push for a mid-table finish next season.
