According to the Mirror’s live blog (11/7, 13:52), Andy Yiadom is set to force a move away from Barnsley by rejecting the club’s offer of a new contract at Oakwell.
Yiadom has just one-year remaining on the two-year deal he agreed with the Tykes last summer, and is attracting interest from Premier League duo, Swansea City and Huddersfield Town.
Huddersfield have already seen a £750k bid rejected for Yiadom, with Barnsley holding out for £2m.
David Wagner’s side remain keen on Yiadom, and want him to compete with Tommy Smith for the right-back spot at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Yiadom’s decision to turn down a new deal at Oakwell has opened the door for Huddersfield to match Barnsley’s £2m valuation and complete a deal.
The 25-year-old impressed during his first 12-months at Oakwell, making 33 appearances across all competitions, including 32 in the Sky Bet Championship.
Yiadom played a major role for Paul Heckingbottom’s side on their return to the second-tier, helping the Tykes to 14th in the division.
Heckingbottom is determined that Yiadom is one of the Championship’s best full-backs, and has insisted if he leaves Oakwell this summer, it will be for the right price.
Barnsley have already lost a number of influential players this summer, with Marc Roberts, Marley Watkins and Josh Scowen all leaving the club.
