It is believed that the Tykes, who won promotion through the League One play-offs during the 2015-16 season, will look to Kent to replace former loanee Lloyd Isgrove, who has returned to parent club Southampton.
Kent made 17 appearances while on loan at the Sky Blues during the 2015-16 season, scoring one goal and providing one assist.

The versatile midfielder will help his new club cement their place in the Championship as he revealed his best attributes to supporters.
“I can play on either side of the wing or behind the striker, I’m really lucky to be gifted with both feet.” Kent told the official Barnsley website.
He made a solo appearance for Liverpool in their FA Cup tie with Exeter before finishing the season with the club’s Under-21s, where he scored three goals and provided two assists in 14 encounters.
The 19-year-old is a flying winger who will still be looking to impress his parent club manager Jurgen Klopp.
