THE Reds are set to sign Hull City striker Nick Proschwitz on loan today.

The out-of-favour German is widely tipped to become Barnsley's fourth signing of the January transfer window.

Manager Danny Wilson, who has already bolstered his side with Ryan McLaughlin, Brek Shea and Liam Lawrence, is keen to add a striker to his attacking options.

Proschwitz, 27, has fallen down the pecking order with Steve Bruce's side having won promotion to the Premier League.
