The 26-year-old defender is said to be a transfer target for former Reds boss Paul Heckingbottom who wants to bring him to Elland Road this summer when his current deal expires.

“All that matters is keeping this football team up," he reportedly said after being quizzed over his future.

“We really need to get a win. We’ll do anything to get three points. At this stage of the season form goes out of the window.

“We need to take each game as it comes and try to get points on the board.”

Yiadom has played 59 times for Barnsley on the back of four years with Barnet and he came close to joining Premier League sides Huddersfield Town and Swansea City in August.

A proposed move to Huddersfield fell through despite Yiadom undergoing a medical and Swansea were unable to to force through a transfer before FIFA’s deadline. The full-back, however, is set to depart Oakwell before the start of next season.
