Manager Paul Clement will be hoping for more creative talent to arrive in January, but one new face could be imminent in his defence, as The Mirror report that Swansea have struck a £2million deal with Barnsley for right back Andy Yiadom, with the Championship club dropping their asking price down from £3million.
It’s noted that West Bromwich Albion have been keen to sign Yiadom, but Swansea have attempted to pip them to his signature by agreeing a deal in advance of the January transfer window.
Yiadom, 26, has impressed for Barnsley since signing from Barnet in 2016, and the Ghanaian international saw a summer move to Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town fall through over some injury concerns.
The right back does now appear to be on the verge of a Premier League move, and barring any late bid from West Brom or any other suitor, he will be heading to South Wales to compete with Kyle Naughton.
