Barnsley have rewarded manager Simon Davey for the club's impressive start to the Championship season with a new four-year contract.
Simon Davey has transformed Barnsley's fortunes this season
He was named caretaker boss when Andy Ritchie was sacked in November 2006 and confirmed in the job a month later.
The Tykes only just escaped relegation last season but are currently eighth in the table with a much-changed side.
"In four years time I want to be in the Premier League with Barnsley Football Club," said Davey.
"We have building blocks that we have to put in place during those four years, but we have the first two in place after staying up and improving the squad.
"There is still a very long way to go and a lot of hard work in front of us. The faith shown in my staff and me is fantastic and I want to reward that with improvement year on year," he told the club's website.
Davey is looking to add at least one more player to his multi-national squad during next month's transfer window.
"We will not be saying anything until the deal is done but I am very confident we will have him with us at the start of January," he added.
"We are scouring England, Europe and South America for players who will improve our team going forward. That does not change whether we are in a transfer window or not."
