Barnsley have confirmed the signing of defender, Mads Anderson on a four-year deal at Oakwell.
The 21-year-old joins from Danish side, AC Horsens for an undisclosed fee, as the Tykes look to strengthen their squad ahead of their Championship campaign, which gets underway in August.
The defender made 22 appearances for AC Horsens last season, and his impressive performances seemingly haven’t gone unnoticed, with the Tykes securing his services.
Speaking in an interview with the club’s official website, Anderson issued his thoughts on his latest move, and is looking forward to playing in the Championship next season.
“I think it’s the right step for me. It is a good club, it’s a good choice for me, everything I have been told sounds really good and I am happy to be here, and we are in a good division.
“I am ready for the next step now. English football is physical and has a lot of duels, I love duels, it’s good and hard working. The league is a big league so I am very excited.”
Anderson will be hoping to hit the ground running with Daniel Stendel’s side, as they look to settle into life back in the Championship.
His arrival will be met with a considerable amount of intrigue, as Anderson could potentially be seen as Liam Lindsay’s replacement at Barnsley.
According to Sky Sports, Lindsay is edging closer to securing a move to Nathan Jones’ Stoke City, with a fee in the region of £2.5m being agreed between the two sides.
This could prove to be a really good signing for Barnsley.
I think it’s only a matter of time before Liam Lindsay leaves the club, and they’ve made a smart move in signing his potential replacement before he departs.
He’s got age on his side as well, and if he can settle into life in English football quickly, then it could prove to be a smart bit of business by Daniel Stendel’s side.
