Huddersfield Town midfielder Duane Holmes is set for a trial at Barnsley.
The American-born 21-year-old will be out of contract this summer, and sources suggest he won’t be offered a new deal.
Now the League I promotion chasers are to run the rule over the Town academy product.
There were high hopes for the midfielder, who was born in Columbus but brought up in Normanton, near Wakefield, when he broke into the first team during the 2013-14 season.
He made his debut from the bench in the 1-0 Capital One Cup third-round defeat at Hull City, when Mark Robins was manager.
There were a further 18 Town appearances (two starts) that season, as well as a loan stint at Yeovil Town.
Holmes had to make do with just one substitute’s appearance, in the Capital One Cup, and a loan to Bury, the following campaign.
But Town still took up the option of a one-year contract extension last summer.
Chris Powell’s departure as manager was followed by a return to the first-team frame as a substitute in the 3-0 home loss to Leeds United in November.

Holmes scored his first career goal in the 5-0 home Championship win over Charlton Athletic in January.
But with plenty of competition in his position, he has made only two starts and three further outings from the bench.
Now he is on his way out as head coach David Wagner prepares to reshape his squad over the summer.
