Defender leaves Oakwell after two years, for an undisclosed fee.
Barnsley Football Club can confirm that it has accepted an offer from Sky Bet Championship side Stoke City, for Liam Lindsay.
The defender joined the Reds in the summer of 2017 from Partick Thistle, going on to make 90 appearances for the club during that time.
Everyone at Barnsley Football Club would like to thank Liam for his professionalism and hard-working attitude during his time at Oakwell after playing an important role in the club’s promotion last season. We wish him nothing but the very best for the remainder of his career, both at club and international level.
Co-Chairman, Paul Conway, issued the following comment after the sale of Lindsay.
“We have offered 10 new contracts to players and coaching staff this summer. We are really pleased to see Jacob Brown, Cauley Woodrow, Mike Bähre and Cameron McGeehan sign new deals and there are plenty of ongoing discussions with others. Liam was one of the players we have offered a new contract to. After a hard-fought battle to keep Liam, we have reluctantly agreed to allow a transfer.
“Liam has been a solid player for us, performed well in Daniel’s side and helped form a strong defence. However, when a player has 12 months remaining on their contract and does not want to sign a new one, we have to make a difficult decision.
“We have made a significant profit on Liam and all of that profit will be reinvested in Barnsley Football Club. We will also retain a significant interest in the future of the player.”
