The Lancashire Telegraph says Barlaser is set to extend his stay at Accrington Stanley until the end of the season while the Reds are also eyeing up a January move for Newcastle United defender Liam Gibson.
Stanley entertain Peterborough United in League One tomorrow looking to close the gap on the top six. That game was due to be Barlaser's last in his loan deal from Newcastle United but the 21-year-old is expected to sign up until the end of the season.
He has made 21 appearances for John Coleman's men so far this term, scoring twice, and has established himself as first choice in the middle of midfield.
Stanley have built up a strong relationship with the Magpies and also have striker Luke Charman on loan at the club.
