Premier League interest in Barnsley defender intensifies after £3m bid

Published

Swansea City are leading the race to sign Andy Yiadom from Barnsley, after the Premier League outfit made a £3m bid, according to a report in The Sun.

The Barnsley defender has just one-year remaining on his contract at Oakwell, and is attracting interest from both the Premier League and Sky Bet Championship.

Huddersfield Town have failed in three separate attempts to sign Yiadom, but with David Wagner’s reluctance to pay more than £2m for the defender, Swansea have moved into the driving seat.

Reading have also shown an interest in the right-back, but interest from the Premier League is proving to be a big factor in the ongoing transfer saga.

Yiadom has only been with Barnsley for 12-months, having arrived as a free transfer last summer from Barnet.

However, despite having no previous experience in the second-tier, Yiadom excelled, helping Barnsley finish 14th in the Championship on their return.

The 25-year-old made 32 Championship appearances, playing a crucial role for Paul Heckingbottom’s side.

Should Yiadom leave Oakwell this summer, he will become part of another mass exodus of players from South Yorkshire.

Marc Roberts has left Barnsley for Birmingham City, whilst influential duo, Marley Watkins and Josh Scowen, turned down the opportunity for a new deal at Oakwell, joining Norwich City and QPR respectively.
