Leeds United reportedly line up summer move for African international

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern have had a difficult season once again, having started strongly in the Championship before capitulating and struggling to find three points. The club has made changes, including the manager, however, their fortunes continue to be the same.

Since Paul Heckingbottom arrived at Elland Road, he has only been able to win one match and has seen his side drop to 14th in the table, when they had looked good for promotion in the early stages of the campaign.

The Whites had signed a number of players last summer, however, punters have been critical of the work carried out by Director of football Victor Orta, however, the former Barnsley manager has identified someone from his previous club to help with their defensive struggles.

According to a report by the Yorkshire Evening Post, Andy Yiadom will be available for a free transfer at the end of the season, as his current deal at Oakwell will expire in June and has revealed he will not sign a new deal at the club.

The Ghana international is highly-rated by the Leeds boss, who signed him from Barnet in 2016, and is desperate to link up with him once again at Elland Road.

Landlord’s Verdict

Leeds fans in the Transfer Tavern will be encouraged with the news that their defensive issues are being looked at ahead of next season, with Yiadom being a proven name within the Championship. The defender has played 59 times for Barnsley and has previously been linked with moves to Premier League sides Huddersfield Town and Swansea City.
