​Clement hopeful of January deal for Barnsley defender Yiadom

Swansea City manager Paul Clement has admitted that the club will revisit their pursuit of Barnsley star Andy Yiadom in January.

Swansea were believed to be very close to securing the services of Yiadom in January but the transfer evidently did not come into fruition and now Clement has revealed that the Swans will look to revive their interest in the Barnsley defender during the January transfer window.

"It was too close to the deadline. We tried to get it over the line, but there just wasn't enough time," said the Swans boss.

"That's the thing with the transfer window, you're trying to get so many things over the line that there must be a pecking order. That one unfortunately just got away from us. But it is possibly something we could revisit in January. He is a player we like so we will have to see."
