The winger will spend a month at Oakwell to get fit.
Striker Daniel Bogdanovic could return to the Tykes' starting line-up. The Malta international has been struggling with a knee injury in recent weeks, but played the second half in Saturday's defeat at Reading.
Defenders Rob Kozluk and Bobby Hassell both remain sidelined due to knee and groin injuries respectively, while Iceland international midfielder Emil Hallfredsson is hoping to return to the side after starting on the substitutes' bench on Saturday.
Tykes manager Mark Robins has no new injury or suspension problems and is not expected to make too many changes.
