Huddersfield deny move for Ipswich striker

Published Add your comment

Huddersfield boss Lee Clark has denied making an approach for Ipswich striker Jon Stead.

The 27-year-old, who spent the end of last season on loan at Coventry, looks set for the exit door at Portman Road after falling out of favour. But, despite expressing his admiration for the player, Clark insists he has not made contact over a possible move.

"Jon's a very good footballer who made a big impact after moving from here to Blackburn and has continued to score goals ever since.

He is under contract at Ipswich, and if I wanted to speak to any player under contract, I would approach his manager first. That's what I did with Jordan Rhodes, but I haven't contacted Roy (Keane) about Jon Stead," Clark told the Huddersfield Examiner.

He added: "He's also a player (Town performance coach) Steve Black knows well, having worked with him at Sunderland."
