Huddersfield Town in the next few days will most likely be signing the following 3 people:

1: Ross McCormack
2: Paul dixon
3: Dale Jennings

These 3 shall probably be Huddersfield Town players within the next few days and in the next week or so Huddersfield will also probably sign grant mccann and another central midfield. i have also heard from a reliable source that lee Peltier will be returning to the Yorkshire club.

Believable1 Unbelievable4

A yorkshire club, that would be leeds

My brother goes to Leeds Uni and has been keeping his ear glued to Radio Leeds for news about Rhodes coming to us. On Friday night their chief exec said how suprised he was that no enquiries had been made for Rhodes and as far as the club and the player were concerned Rhodes would be playing the first game of the season away at Cardiff. I'm gutted

Believable1 Unbelievable5

Bit careless your brother, mind you I glued my fingers together once. Forget Rhodes he's ambitious and besides that he'll cost more than the £400,000 you couldn't afford for Joel Ward.

Agree2 Disagree1

We didnt want ward numb nuts, and if he is ambitious then he will definitely leave for a bigger club, which could be anyone really

Agree1 Disagree0

Realy, That's why his twitter site was full of Leeds fans begging him to sign for Leeds, he spent 2 days at Leeds in negotiations but Ken wouldn't or couldn't pay the money! Remove your blinkers, Leeds like many others have no divine right to be a premier league club. You have some great supporters but unfortunately some right morons!

First of all who at Reading in any authority would pass on ongoing transfer talk to Reading fans posting on the Town page? Second if a club have a player they do not want to sell then they ask a price they do not think will be matched. So Jordan Rhodes is worth £8m to Deano and he would not sell for much less than that price. Deano is a very successful businessman who knows that unless Rhodes getsinjured his price will rise. Remember he is an international player. Thirdly, West Ham offered approximately £5m plus add ons while we were still a League 1 club so unless Deano lost his fortune on black while playing roulette do you honestly think he would sell him now for £3.5? Promotion to Town meant £5 - £8m. And finally, would Jordan go to a club we will be playing in season 2013/2014 (unless of course we get promotion. Get real !

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Personally I don't want him, he has only played L1 standard. Too much risk on a player who is "worth" 8million. No offence but Reading have more chance of getting to Europe than Huddersfield getting to play offs. Lets see how he copes with better players in the championship.

Agree1 Disagree1

He's an international?, lol , he plays for scotland, not a great endorsement
