QPR set to table bid for Barnsley’s Yiadom

QPR are set to table a bid for Barnsley defender Andy Yiadom.

The London-born former Hayes & Yeading player is among a number of full-backs Rangers have been considering making an offer for.

They now intend to make a formal approach for Yiadom, 25, but expect Barnsley to be reluctant to sell. Several other clubs are understood to be interested in him.

Barnsley are unhappy to lose Josh Scowen to Rangers, who will sign the midfielder when his Tykes contract expires this weekend.

And QPR will also attempt to prise Ghana international Yiadom away from the Yorkshire club, who signed him from Barnet on a two-year contract in May 2016.

One of the reasons Rangers want Yiadom is his versatility.

Manager Ian Holloway wants to bring in players who can operate in different positions, particularly given the club’s current budgetary restrictions.

Although primarily a right-back, Yiadom can also play at left-back or as a winger.
