Terriers yet to receive substantial Rhodes fee
Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle has reiterated that the Terriers have yet to receive an offer deemed substantial enough for star striker Jordan Rhodes with Friday’s transfer deadline looming.
The Scotland international (pictured) has already struck two goals this season, claiming his first from the penalty spot in a midweek draw with Nottingham Forest before striking again at John Smith’s Stadium against Burnley in a 2-0 victory at the weekend.
With Rhodes' goal scoring form showing no signs of abating, many Premier League and fellow Championship clubs have been linked with a move for the prolific striker but Huddersfield feel under no pressure to sell given the derisory offers put forward thus far.
Hoyle said: “I want the best for him, but at the same time – and I have spelled this out to Jordan, his agent and everybody – the fee has got to be right for Huddersfield Town.”
The 22-year-old has struck over 70 goals for the West Yorkshire outfit since making the move from Ipswich Town in 2009 and has become an indispensable part of the team, following an inspired 2011/12 which saw the Terriers reach the Championship courtesy of a play-off final penalty shootout victory over Sheffield United.
It is expected that Blackburn Rovers could come forward with an improved bid and Huddersfield manager Simon Grayson and the fans will be hoping the club can cling on to his services beyond Friday.
