The Star reported on Monday that the 20-year-old was closing in on a move to Hillsborough as he sought a reunion with his former Doncaster Rovers manager, Darren Moore, and it now appears that things have taken a step closer to being agreed.

If all goes well, TJJ will be able to get a few days of training with his new teammates in the build-up to the big game against Ipswich Town in S6 on Saturday afternoon.

John-Jules has got six goals and three assists in two loan spells in League One with Rovers and Lincoln City, with his most productive spell coming during his time being utilised as a centre forward rather than out wide.

Wednesday’s first signing of the window was completed last week as they snapped up Jordan Storey on loan from Preston North End, and John-Jules is set to become their seventh loanee if the deal does get finalised in the next day or so.
