Barnsley head coach Paul Heckingbottom has been reported as describing a bid from newly-promoted Premier League club Huddersfield Town for Ghanaian defender Andy Yiadom as “disrespectful”.
It is understood that the Terriers offered £750,000 for the right back, who impressed in his debut championship season with the Reds last term.
Barnsley value Yiadom at around the £2m mark and Heckingbottom, insisting that the player will leave the club only if his true value is met, is quoted in the Ghana Times as saying: “It’s a bit disrespectful rally. We’ve received bids and they’ve been a million miles away from our valuation of Andy.
‘If they think Andy Yiadom is worth only what they’ve bid then Yids should be upset by it as well.
‘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.”
