Ex-Partick Thistle man set for Serie A move5 June 2019
Surprises have echoed this morning in the transfer market as former Partick Thistle stalwart, Liam Lindsay, now below the border with Barnsley, is being strongly linked with a £1m move to Serie B champions Brescia. He made 41 appearances for the Oakwell side as they gained promotion back to the second tier this season.
He wouldn’t be the first Scot to take the plunge in Italy, with former Celtic youngster Liam Henderson helping his Verona side to promotion alongside Brescia.
He’s been linked with both Old Firm clubs in the past months but it is looking increasingly likely that Brescia will snap him up in the near future.
Lindsay has been with Barnsley since 2017, after his outstanding performances at Firhill earned him the only spot in the 2016/17 SPL Team of the Year not to be taken by an Aberdeen or Celtic player.
He’s made 90 appearances for the Tykes, scoring three goals as they’ve been relegated and then immediately promoted to the English second tier.
As many as six Championship clubs are also interest in securing Lindsay’s esteemed signature, with West Brom, Stoke and Middlesbrough emerging front runners behind Brescia.
Brescia are owned by controversial former Leeds investor Massimo Cellino, who was infamous for his insightful passion for sacking managers. It seems he has more success in his native country.
Depending on the outcome, Lindsay could be playing against Reading, or Ronaldo next season. Where do you think he should head?
