Harvey Barnes in action for MK Dons last season against Oldham Athletic
Leicester City midfielder Harvey Barnes has agreed a deal to join Barnsley on loan HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club
Barnes is highly-regarded at Leicester after coming through the ranks at the King Power Stadium.
Barnes, who made his first-team debut last season in a Champions League defeat to FC Porto, signed a new four-year deal at Leicester earlier this summer to keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2021.
The 19-year-old also enjoyed a successful spell on loan at MK Dons last season, winning the club's young player of the season before finishing top scorer as England Under-20s won the Toulon Tournament this summer.
Leicester have high hopes for the attacking midfielder, but his first-team chances were set to be limited this season under Craig Shakespeare.
A number of Championship clubs have expressed an interest in Barnes, but Barnsley have moved quickly to secure the teenager's signature as Tykes boss Paul Heckingbottom looks to bolster his attacking options.
Barnes is expected to go straight into the Barnsley squad for this weekend's clash with Ipswich Town at Oakwell.
