Championship side Barnsley are imminently set to announce the signing of in-demand Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw, according to BBC reporter Andy Giddings.
Bradshaw hit the headlines earlier this week by handing in a transfer request with the Saddlers as he expressed his desire to leave the club and seek a move at a higher level.
The 23-year-old scored 20 goals in all competitions for Walsall last season.
Despite being born in Shrewsbury, Bradshaw has earned one cap for Wales at international level having grown up in Tywyn, Gwynedd. He made his debut for his nation earlier this year in the 1-0 friendly defeat to Ukraine back on 28th March.
The transfer of Bradshaw will be Tykes manager Paul Heckingbottom’s eighth addition of the summer. He has already signed Andy Yiadom, Stefan Payne, Kayden Jackson, George Moncur, Elliot Lee, Elliot Kebbie, and Dylan Mottley-Henry for a total value of £500,000.
It is expected that Bradshaw will cost an estimated £800,000 to bring to Oakwell but this fee could rise with add-ons based on the striker’s appearances and performances over the coming seasons at Barnsley.
