Boss Unhappy With Yiadom Offers

Boss Unhappy With Yiadom Offers

When you're a good footballer you'll attract interest. That's proven to be the case with Andy Yiadom but the offers so far coming in for the Barnsley defender are 'disrespectful' according to Paul Heckingbottom.

The Star reports interest shown in Yiadom, claimed to be from Premier League side Huddersfield, fall well below the Tykes' valuation of the former Barnet man.

Heckingbottom was quoted: 'It`s [the bid] a bit disrespectful really. We`ve received bids and they`ve been a million miles away from our valuation of Andy. "If they think Andy Yiadom is only worth what they`ve bid then Yids should be upset by it as well.'

Not only will good footballers interest rival clubs they should also command money reflective of their ability - as the boss feels Yiadom is one of the best full backs in the Championship he should get a fee matching so.

'In my mind he`s one of the best full backs in the Championship and if someone wants to buy one of the best full backs in the Championship then they should have to pay the money for him. Like I`ve said we`ve not received any offers that are good money for him.'

Barnsley agreed a deal with Yiadom, 25, before a place in the Championship was secured but the step up from League Two hasn't been a problem for him.

Midway through a two year deal the club are desperate to tie down the consistent performer from last season.

Heckingbottom added: 'Yids was arguably our most consistent player last season, a really important member of our squad and our group. We`re in a position where we`re trying to sort a deal with him and tie him down to us.'
