Barnsley: No new offers for Yiadom

Coach Paul Heckingbottom reveals Swansea City and Huddersfield Town have not made any recent monetary approach for their target man

According to Barnsley coach Paul Heckingbottom, the club are yet to receive any fresh bid for want-away defender Andy Yiadom.

The Ghana international has been a subject of intense transfer speculations as topflight sides Swansea City and Huddersfield Town engage in a two-horse race for his signature.

Both teams have already had separate bids rejected, and after Heckingbottom described Huddersfield's £750,000 offer as "disrespectful", reports say Swansea have tabled a new £3 million bid.

“We have been clear that no-one is going to get him on the cheap and after being really clear about that, they [clubs] seem to have backed off," Heckingbottom told the Yorkshire Post.

“So maybe that is what they were thinking; they could get real good value.

"And now they know what they would have to pay, they seem to have quietened down about it.”

Yiadom joined Barnsley from Barnet in summer last year, having also played for Braintree Town and Hayes & Yeading FC.
