If Huddersfield Town staying up by drawing with Chelsea wasn’t annoying enough already, the result means that Swansea City are almost certainly going to go down, even with a win against Stoke City on Sunday. The problem with Swansea going down is that it means that any potential transfer for Kyle Bartley might not happen now.

Phil Hay of the Yorkshire Evening Post pretty much confirmed that the deal to bring Bartley back to Elland Road is going to get a lot trickier with Swansea playing in the Championship, but who knows. Maybe Radrizzani will make it happen to cheer the fans up, eh?
