Arriving at Oakwell following a breakthrough 2016/17 season with Blackpool, where his goal and assist at Wembley saw the Tangerines promoted back to League One, the former Carlisle midfielder arrived in Barnsley looking to take his impressive lower league form into the Championship with the Reds.

Early strikes against Preston and Burton got Potts settled in at Oakwell as he became a fixture in Heckingbottom's side in the 2017/18 campaign.
