Andy Yiadom's future to be decided today

Barnsley boss Paul Heckingbottom says Huddersfield Town target Andy Yiadom's future will be known today after some uncertainty over his status.

The Ghana is not being considered for selection while he is "in limbo" over his future at the Championship club.

The 25-year-old Ghana defender, who arrived from League Two side Barnet in May 2016, was left out of Tuesday's clashing clash with Nottingham and Saturday's home defeat by Ipswich having started their two previous games.

Heckingbottom said talks with Premier League newcomers are ongoing and that the situation should be sorted by the end of today.

The Barnsley manager added that negotiations for the player, who made 33 appearances for the Championship club last season, "can't go much longer" and that he "expects" Yiadom's future to be known by Thursday.

"I'm not thinking about it until after the game on Tuesday," he said.

"In my eyes I don't have Yids until I'm told different," he said.

"It wasn't right for me to involve Yids in the game on Saturday and if it is still the same, it won't be Tuesday because it is not fair on the other players.

"We are all preparing for our game and obviously Yids is in limbo at the minute.

"Until it is resolved one way or another and I'm told, I'm not considering him."
