Date of birth
A towering, elegant central defender, Mads Andersen signed for the Reds in the summer of 2019 from Danish Superliga outfit AC Horsens despite interest from fellow Championship clubs.
A youth international at various levels, Andersen developed with Brondby in his homeland.
It was a year of transition for Mads during the 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship campaign, where his early performances showed promise before his form dropped off a little.
Known for his big smile and infectious personality around Oakwell, Andersen went from strength to strength in the latter part of the season, proving a key performer as Barnsley secured their second tier status on the final day of the season.
