Fresh twist emerges in potential Derby County and Huddersfield Town transfer agreement
The Rams were said to be leading the race for veteran striker Jordan Rhodes, but the situation has been turned on its head
Derby County have an experienced front-line already for the 2023-24 season with both Conor Washington and James Collins signed up, but it has been reported that it could be about to get an even more veteran feel to it.
TEAMtalk have claimed that the Rams are leading the transfer chase for Jordan Rhodes, with reports last week that he was set for an exit from Huddersfield Town for the second time.
Rhodes re-signed for the Terriers for the second time in 2021 some nine years after his departure to Blackburn Rovers for £8 million, but he has not been the same prolific player in recent years as he was as his younger self.
10 goals in 63 appearances in all competitions have been scored by the 33-year-old and at the back end of last season he was not really utilised much by Neil Warnock in his short-term stint in charge of Town.
And when the veteran manager confirmed that he was staying on at the John Smith’s Stadium it looked as though the writing was on the wall for Rhodes, who was left out of the club’s pre-season training camp in Cornwall.
It was reported though by Alan Nixon that Rhodes wasn’t exactly pushing to leave Huddersfield with one year remaining on his contract, and now a fresh twist has emerged in his situation.
