Huddersfield Town are interested in making a potential move for Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon in the summer transfer window, according to the Daily Record.
The Terriers could be in need of a new goalkeeper in the summer, with both Jonas Lossl and Kamil Grabara on loan from Premier League Everton and Liverpool respectively, meaning that they will both leave the club following the end of their loan spells at the end of the campaign.
Danny Cowley’s side could see Ben Hamer return to the club from his loan spell at Derby County, but they would still be short in the goalkeeping department, which would leave them needing to find a potential new number keeper during the summer transfer window.

It is now thought that the Terriers are monitoring Gordon’s situation at Celtic, with the experienced Scotland international set to be out of contract with the Scottish champions in the summer – and Huddersfield are thought to have been keen on the 37-year-old in January, before they eventually brought Lossl back to the club.
Cowley will clearly be facing the task of finding a new number one goalkeeper in the summer, with both Lossl and Grabara returning to their parent clubs, and it could prove to be a key decision for the Terriers in terms of who they want their first choice keeper to be over the next couple of seasons.
Gordon would represent a solid signing for Huddersfield, considering the keeper’s vast experience and he still has plenty to offer a potential new club in the summer, which could make him the ideal option for the Terriers to bring in on a free transfer in the summer.
The only real issue over this potential signing is whether or not Gordon would be able to provide the longevity they could do with from any new goalkeeper, with the 37-year-old coming towards the end of his career, but he might feel that he has a couple more seasons of first team football left in him.
A move for Gordon would probably depend on what division Huddersfield find themselves in, which means that the Terriers will be needing to concentrate on securing their Championship status, and then pursuing a move for the keeper in the summer, if they feel he is the right choice to have between the sticks.
