Leeds United have been linked with Barnsley defender Andy Yiadom, and Leeds fans can’t decide what to make of the news.
According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Paul Heckingbottom wants to raid his former club this summer and bring Yiadom to Elland Road.
The 26 year-old is a versatile full back who can play on either flank, and also on the wing. He has impressed suitors this season with his pace and power, and will be available on a free transfer when his contract runs out this summer.
It is no surprise that the club is already planning for next season. Leeds’ season has gone from decent to bad to worse, and the arrival of Heckingbottom certainly did not have the desired impact.
While some fans are questioning whether the ex-Barnsley man will even still be in charge next season, the rest have been debating the move for Yiadom on Twitter, and it seems like a pretty even split.
The flying full back has earned two senior caps for Ghana, and has had a good season despite Barnsley’s current condition.

I watched Barnsley play Wigan last season and Yiadom was fantastic. Great athletism.
Surprised he's still there tbh

Nearly went to Huddersfield and Swansea in the prem so anyone expressing any discontent with this is just jumping on the bandwagon

Adapting the Wolves model I see

Surely we are going to give he RB to arguably one of our most consistent players in Luke Ayling, the back 4 look considerably weaker without him and we don’t lose the same threat going forward with out. Also Coyle is tearing up trees at Fleetwood easily able to step in.
