The Canada international has impressed on loan at Deepdale and will now make the permanent switch for an undisclosed fee.

North End chairman Maurice Lindsay said: "It has been obvious for some time we have wanted to make Iain's move to Deepdale a permanent one."

He added: "During his emergency loan spell Iain's effervescent qualities and energy brought something different to our squad. I am delighted we have been able to come to a financial agreement with Barnsley and Iain himself.

"We cannot complete the paperwork on the deal until New Year`s Day, however we have finalised arrangements now in order to make sure Iain is available for us for the trip to Crystal Palace on Monday."
