Jason Denayer is thoroughly enjoying a loan spell at Celtic, but hopes his long-term future lies at Manchester City.
Gabriel Obertan never allowed his head to drop during a tough spell at Newcastle and has now seen his persistence rewarded.
Frenchman Manset left Swiss club FC Sion earlier this month and has now linked up with the Tykes for a week-long spell.
Manager David Flitcroft recognises that it will take some time for the 23-year-old to work up to the required level, but has indicated that he would be keen to complete a deal.
"He's trained with us, but he looked a little bit rusty," Flitcroft said in The Star.
"He's not ready now, which we expected but hopefully it won't take him long to catch up with the intensity."
Manset spent a couple of years with Hereford United before joining Reading in 2011 and later moving on to Sion.
