Barnsley manager Keith Hill is looking to sign two players on loan.
The Tykes are still without the injured pair of Danny Haynes and Bobby Hassell and Hill wants to strengthen his squad before the busy Christmas period.
He told BBC Radio Sheffield: "There's a few irons in the fire. I do feel we need at least two new recruits to get us through this hectic schedule.
"We probably need at least two new signings in the loan market and then we'll see where we are in January."
The deadline for loan signings is Thursday, 24 November.
