No Swansea Joy For Yiadom

No Swansea Joy For Yiadom

Barnsley's Andy Yiadom will have to wait until January, at least, for his chance to play in the Premier League.

Huddersfield interest in Yiadom ended recently, however, Swansea's remained but a bid to secure the Ghana international on loan came too late with it ruled the paperwork didn't go through on time.

According to the BBC, a loan bid failed after an appeal, from both clubs, to the Football Association, to permit Yiadom to join the Welsh club was turned down.

The BBC said: 'The FA ruled the paperwork for the 25-year-old was submitted too late for the transfer window, which closed at 23:00 BST on Thursday.'

A deal was conducted between the Reds and Swansea though as forward Oli McBurnie of course arrived on loan until the end of the season - Yiadom would have joined the Swans temporarily ahead of a proposed permanent transfer in January.

Meanwhile, Barnsley chairman Maurice Watkins this week confirmed he was leaving the club and its board.

A statement on the Official Website read: 'It was just over four years ago that the owner Patrick Cryne asked me to become chairman of the board of directors. I have now decided the time is right to move on and I wish the club, the players, the fans, and the board every success for the future.'

The club added: 'We would like to thank Maurice for his time at Oakwell and wish him the best for his future.'
