Ghanaian defender undergoes medicals at Huddersfield United

Huddersfield to make Barnsley full-back Andy Yiadom their 11th signing of the summer

Ghanaian defender Andy Yiadom is having a medical at Huddersfield.

The 25-year-old full-back is set to complete his move from Barnsley after a breakthrough in talks between the clubs.

David Wagner has beaten Swansea to his signature, with the Welsh club bidding £3million but failing to secure a deal.

Yiadom will be Huddersfield’s ELEVENTH signing in a hectic summer of transfers following promotion to the Premier League.

Steve Mounie, Laurent Depoitre, Mathias Jorgensen, Jonas Lossl, Aaron Mooy, Tom Ince, Kasey Palmer, Danny Williams, Scott Malone and Elias Kachunga have already arrived.

And Yiadom will compete for a place after a stunning rise from non-league football and League Two with Barnet before catching the eye of clubs in the second tier.

He moved to Barnsley a year ago but only had a year left on his contract, sparking interest in taking him on a cut-price deal this window.

Yiadom, who can play on both flanks, was called up to the Ghana squad as reward for his fine form and he went to the African Cup of Nations.
