Huddersfield’s proposed transfer move for Barnsley defender Andy Yiadom has collapsed.

The 25-year-old, who had also attracted interest from Swansea, had entered the final year of his contract at Oakwell.

Huddersfield manager David Wagner said there was no issue over the finances of the deal, which had been agreed between the two clubs.

 “To be honest I don’t like to go into details because he isn’t our player,” he said. “It wasn’t down to financial reasons between the player and us.

“We were not able to come together but it was nothing to do with the financial side of the deal.

“He isn’t my player, he isn’t our player; this is something for Barnsley to answer and not me. This deal will not happen in this window.”

Huddersfield do remain in the market to buy players in the current window, and Wagner will use the squad’s performances in their remaining August matches to make a full assessment of what is required.

“We have our eyes on the market, I think this is our job,” he said. “It could happen in both directions, in and out, in the next few weeks.

“Pre-season was good but competitive games give you the right idea, the right picture.

“We have three games before the window closes and we need those games to get our heads around what we want to do and need to do.”
