Barnsley defender Liam Lindsay has moved to quash reports linking him with a move away from Oakwell.
The 22-year old won the Players’ Player of the Year award last season despite the club ending up relegated, but he’s in no mood to swap Yorkshire for Italy as he seeks to earn an immediate promotion.
The former Partick Thistle man has been excellent so far this season, his performances have attracted interest from a host of other sides including Serie B outfit Brescia in Italy, but Lindsay insists he is staying put.
“I’m happy here,” he told the Star. “It happens every year. I’m happy here and I’m settled here. I’m just looking forward to the game. “Some boys have been saying that we’ve got a really good squad capable of going up. If we all stick together, I don’t see why it’s not possible.”
Barnsley are third in the early league table, level on points with Sunderland and Walsall.
They face Rochdale this weekend as they look to keep their unbeaten run going under new boss Daniel Stendel.
Brescia is in northern Italy, so he wouldn’t be moving to a warmer climate which might be one reason to stay put!
In all seriousness, the new manager is building a unique side at Oakwell and they look to have every chance of being right up there come May.
Why wouldn’t he want a title winners medal, even if it was ‘only’ for League One?
