Former Bolton winger Ricardo Vaz Te will sign for Championship Barnsley subject to international clearance.
The 24 year-old Portuguese has signed a one-year contract after impressing on-trial.
Tykes boss Keith Hill, said: "He's got unfinished business in the English leagues.
"On his day he can be a matchwinner. He could be one of those players who takes up this opportunity and lights up the division, quite easily."
Vaz Te joined Bolton on a free transfer in 2003 and spent the next seven years there, making a total of 78 appearances, before his release in the summer of 2010.
