Huddersfield have met Northamptons asking price of 600k for Michael Jacobs which we (Derby) have refused to pay. We wanted a deal settled in court as we thought we would get him for less. No deal in place as yet but talks will commence between Huddersfield and Jacobs when he gets back from his holiday. Doesn't mean we will lose out on him though as no disrespect to Huddersfield but surely Jacobs will reject Huddersfield for us!

Jack - u ramzzz

Bryher Pilgrim {Ed001's Note - I am tempted to, hell I am tempted to fix his spelling every time I read them, poor spelling puts my teeth on edge! But no one would believe it was him if I wrote them. Though he is moving with the times, I hear he was wearing a kilt last week......}
