Swansea City to sign Ghana defender Andy Yiadom

Barnsley defender Andy Yiadom could be set for a Premier League move in January as Swansea City have reportedly stepped up their interest in him.

The Swans are keen to bring the Ghana international, 26, whose contract at Oakwell expires at the end of the season, to the Liberty Stadium.

He has rejected a new deal and Barnsley are set to cash in on him in January.

Barnsley had originally been asking for £3million for the attacking full-back but they are now willing to drop their price and MirrorSport understands Swansea have started to negotiate.

Long-term admirers Swansea are moving quickly to try to head off rival top-flight interest from West Brom, who have been scouting the defender.

Yiadom nearly moved to promoted Huddersfield in the summer but a deal was aborted in the last hour due to injury concerns.

He has been capped twice by Ghana.
