The 23-year-old, who joined Barnsley in 2017, could join the Potters for a fee just worth over £2 million.
Liam Lindsay Set For Stoke City Switch
The Potters will pay an initial £2 million fee for the centre-back with another £500,000 possible in performance-related add-ons.
Lindsay is now set to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms with the Championship club.
Despite suffering relegation from the Championship in his first season with Barnsley, the defender was a key figure, making over 40 appearances.
The Scot had a successful second season at Oakwell too. He made 46 appearances and scored two goals as the club made an immediate return to the Championship.
He would be a great addition to Nathan Jones‘ Stoke side. The Potters will look to improve from their mid-table finish and search for a return to the Premier.
The 23-year-old joined Barnsley from Partick Thistle, who themselves could earn £400,000 following a 20% sell on fee.
Gary Caldwell’s Jags could invest this money wisely as the club look to improve from their sixth-placed finish in the Scottish Championship.
In his final season with the Jags, the Scot’s performances earned him a place in the PFA Scottish Premiership team of the year.
His recent performances have led to him being considered for an international call up, but so far this hasn’t happened. A move to Stoke and a consistent string of performances for the Potters could change that, though.
