Barnsley defender Andy Yiadom will be the subject of a £4m January bid by Premiership side Huddersfield Town, according to a report by the printed version of the Daily Mirror.

Yiadom was on the verge of joining the Terriers in the summer, but the move collapsed in the final stages due to a failed medical. He also attracted interest from Swansea City, who missed out on his signature on deadline day due to a late paper work submission.

The 25-year-old is into the last year of his contract at Barnsley, and they face losing him on a free transfer next summer should he stay beyond the January window.

Yiadom, who can operate at both left and right back, began his professional career at League Two side Barnet. He made 177 appearances for the club, scoring 15 goals and assisting 14.

At Barnet, he was often used a winger but eventually settled on his preferred position of full back. He went on to captain the Bees, before joining Barnsley on a free transfer upon his contract expiry.

In his first season at Oakwell, he established himself as a first team regular under boss Paul Heckingbottom. He made 32 appearances, helping the club to a 14th place finish in the Championship.

After being left out of the squad at the beginning of the season due to question marks over his future, the twice capped Ghana international has regained his position as the clubs first choice full back.

However, it is growing increasingly unlikely that Yiadom will sign an extension on his deal at Barnsley, so a deal to sell him in January is looking a real possibility.
