Bids expected for United and Celtic striker target

Published Add your comment

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark says he is expecting bids for striker Jordan Rhodes in the January transfer window, but insists the club don't need to sell the Scottish international.

Rhodes has scored 17 goals in as many League One appearances for The Terriers this season, after adding four against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The forward has been previously linked with moves to Celtic, Manchester United and Newcastle United, but Clark is adamant they club will fight off bids for the 21-year-old.

"We're not silly, and we know he's a hot property, but the chairman (Dean Hoyle) has said he won't sell and the lad doesn't want to leave," he said.

"Dean has already stated his money is better in Jordan than it is in the bank, and while we know the calls will come next month to test our resolve, I'm comfortable.

"When you have an owner who is a massive supporter and has a bob or two, you're not in that position of needing to sell. Promotion is more important to Dean than pounds."

Of those clubs expected to be in for the forward are Premier League champions United, who had their interest confirmed last month, and Celtic and Newcastle, who have both been scouting the forward.

Reports had suggested that United had sent former midfielder Paul Scholes to watch Rhodes earlier in the season, while Neil Lennon had personally gone along to watch the former Ipswich Town man.
