Swansea Make £3m Bid as Race for Barnsley Full-Back Andy Yiadom Heats Up

24 July 2017 12:51

​Swansea City have made a £3 offer for Barnsley full-back Andy Yiadom.

Paul Clement's side are looking to bolster their defence after a leaky campaign last season and according to ​The Sun, the Swans have now moved to the top of the list ahead of ​Premier League new-boys ​Huddersfield in the race for the 25-year-old's signature.

David Wagner's side have seen three bids, with the latest being a £2m offer rebuffed from the Yorkshire side with them waiting for a club to match their valuation of their man.

Further interest has been shown from ​Championship sides Reading and QPR, but with both Swansea and the Terriers now both showing an interest a move to the top-flight will surely be difficult to turn down.

The Tykes have been keen to keep Yiadom at Oakwell, but with his contract expiring next summer, they could sell him for a cut-price fee rather than losing him on a free transfer.

The full-back who can also play as a winger has made an impressive rise from non-league playing for Hayes and Yeading and Braintree before moving to Barnet where he made a major impact and won promotion to the Football League.

After joining ​Barnsley on a free transfer last summer, he impressed in his first season in the second-tier earning his first call-up to the Ghana squad in this year's Africa Cup of Nations, featuring twice for the Black Stars in Gabon.
