Reds Plan Yiadom Talks

Barnsley CEO Gauthier Ganaye has told the Yorkshire Post that contract talks with sought after full-back Andy Yiadom will take place to try and stave off interest from all over the country.

The 25-year-old Ghanian international, who only joined the Reds 14 months ago from Barnet, has been subject of interest from Premier League and Championship clubs alike after an impressive debut season in the second tier.

Swansea, QPR, Reading and Huddersfield are all thought to be keen admirers of the man who made 32 appearances for the Reds last season, in a campaign that saw him win his first cap for Ghana at the African Cup of Nations.

Ganaye told YP Sport:

“Andy has one-year left on his contract and we are aiming to offer him a new deal. We are discussing and hopefully we will find an agreement with him.

“He did a full season last year and we want him to play a big part next season."

Meanwhile, the Reds have agreed to release forward Elliot Lee from his contract so he can join League Two play-off semi-finalists Luton Town.

The 22-year-old joined the Reds from Colchester United last summer but could only manage six appearances in his time at Oakwell and his contract has been mutually terminated in order for him to move to Kenilworth Road on a free transfer.
