Barnsley are interested in signing Partick Thistle defender Liam Lindsay this summer, according to reliable journalist Alan Nixon.

Liam Lindsay has been attracting plenty of interest this summer and is expected to leave Partick Thistle to join an English club.

League One outfit Oxford United recently saw a bid accepted for the young centre half but he opted not to join the U’s amid uncertainty over the future of manager Michael Appleton.

Appleton is believed to be on the verge of becoming Craig Shakespeare’s assistant manager at Leicester City.

Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and Leeds United have also been credited with an interest in Liam Lindsay in the past.

However, Barnsley have now entered the race and they are prepared to pay a fee for the 21-year-old.

Oxford United’s accepted bid was an initial payment of £300,000 so the Tykes would probably have to match that if they wanted to land the young Scotsman, who is being tipped for a senior call-up.

Liam Lindsay was named in the Scottish Premiership team of the year – the only player in that side who was not from Celtic or Aberdeen.

After 42 games and 7 goals, the towering centre half has caught the attention of a number of clubs south of the border as he looks set for his next career step.

Barnsley could see Liam Lindsay as a long-term successor for Marc Roberts, who has been attracting interest from the Premier League.
