Andy Yiadom was asked about his future and where he would be playing football next season, as the Barnsley FC fullback has been rumoured to be in frame for a move to Leeds United next season after seeing out his contract at Oakwell.
Yiadom was coy, saying only:
All that matters is keeping this football team up.
We really need to get a win. We’ll do anything to get three points. At this stage of the season form goes out of the window. “We need to take each game as it comes and try to get points on the board
Not exactly what you’d like to hear if you were a fan of Barnsley, but good news for Leeds fans, as current Leeds boss Paul Heckingbottom brought Yiadom to Barnsley and is rumoured to be interested in securing his services again.
Of course, he’s not a left back, but hey, if he’s available on a free, why not.
