Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has expatiated on why his outfit failed to land Ghanaian defender Andy Yiadom.

The newly promoted side were reported to close to finalizing a deal for the Ghana international from Barnsley but negotiations between the two sides fell through at the dying embers.

The Terriers secured a second win in the English Premier League over the weekend when they beat Newcastle 1-0 and David Wagner who was speaking to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner about the events of the past week regarding Yiadom’s failed move.

“To be honest, I don’t like to talk details because Andy Yiadom is not our player,” Wagner said, as reported by The Huddersfield Daily Examiner.

“But it wasn’t a financial reason – not between ourselves and the player and not between Barnsley and ourselves.”

“Everything else I think should be answered by Barnsley or the player as to why we were not able to come together, but it was not a financial reason.”

It is not unusual to hear rumours of a failed medical bandied around in the wake of collapsed deal after the routine.

Wagner, however, fails to be drawn into the topic.

“As I say, he is not our player, so this is something Barnsley has to answer,” said Wagner.

“Yes, [the deal is dead]. In this window, it will not happen.”

Meanwhile, David Wagner has been a longtime admirer of the 25 year old.

Andy Yiadom made his Ghana debut at the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year in Gabon.
