The Seasiders put in a sell-on clause for the midfielder when he left Bloomfield Road to join the Tykes in July 2017, reports the Blackpool Gazette.PNE have paid Barnsley an undisclosed seven-figure fee for the 24-year-old who could make his Lilywhites debut against Swansea at Deepdale on Saturday.

The percentage of the sell-on clause has not been confirmed and would most likely apply to any profit the Oakwell club made on a player they paid a reported £750,000 for.

Hexham-born Potts started his career with Carlisle United and then spent two seasons with Blackpool, scoring 16 times in 87 appearances.
