If League One promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town are to achieve promotion this season, it is imperative they keep hold of star striker Jordan Rhodes amidst January transfer enquiries.

The English-born striker who recently made his full international debut for Scotland has struck an incredible 32 goals in just 29 games for both Lee Clark's Terriers and the Scotland under-21 side this season.

His achievements have not gone unnoticed particularly by Championship promotion-chasers West Ham. The East London club were recently rebuffed in their attempts to land the hitman with a failed inquiry believed to be worth around £3million late last month.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce spoke of his clubs intentions: "We have had a straightforward 'absolute no', 'not for sale' from Huddersfield Town."

You can hardly blame Huddersfield for wanting to keep hold of their prize asset after he struck an impressive 5 goals last week in the clubs 6-0 victory at League One strugglers Wycombe. This recent feat stunningly represented his fifth hat-trick of the season.

With Rhodes' reputation blossoming week by week, Lee Clark will be praying January passes by with the striker still in his ranks. But the Town manager is confident he can keep his man.

"I know, Jordan knows, the owner knows and everyone inside the football club knows that come February 1st he will be our player," said Clark.

Potential bids from Premier League clubs for Rhodes' this January however, may test the resolve of the promotion-hopefuls, who last tasted action in England's second tier in 2001.
