Danish centre half reportedly on Edwards’ wish-list

Luton are rumoured to have approached League One side Barnsley about signing defender Mads Andersen during the transfer window.

The Danish centre half started out at Brondby in his home country, before a loan move to Koge where he made his senior debut, then joining FC Horsens in 2017.

Since arriving in England in 2019, Andersen has played 175 games for the Tykes, including 51 last season, scoring twice, as the Oakwell club just missed out on promotion to the Championship, with a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the League One play-off final at Wembley.

Back in January, Barnsley triggered a contract extension on their club captain, extending his deal in South Yorkshire until the end of next season, but Luton have money available to spend after reaching the top flight themselves following their own play-off success against Coventry.

After releasing skipper Sonny Bradley, it means Luton have Tom Lockyer, Reece Burke, Gabe Osho, Amari’i Bell and Dan Potts who can play in the back three, with Football Insider now reporting boss Rob Edwards is eager to bring in Andersen, who won a handful of caps for the Denmark U19s earlier in his career, to bolster his defensive options.
