The former Southampton man is also attracting interest from fellow League One side Walsall.

The 24-year-old is out-of-contract at Huddersfield and manager Chris Powell is keen to keep him at the John Smith’s Stadium, but it seems his four year stay in West Yorkshire is set to come to an end.

Gobern joined the Terriers from the Saints for a tribunal-fixed £250,000 in the summer of 2011 and has gone on to make 79 appearances for Town.

Injuries have disrupted the midfielder’s progress at Huddersfield and he joined Chesterfield for a short loan spell in October.

But he forced his way back into Powell’s plans towards the end of the season and played the final eight matches, scoring once in the 4-4 draw against Derby County in April.

Born in Birmingham, the former England Under-19 international was on the books at Aston Villa as a youngster before joining Southampton, where he featured 27 times as the Saints won promotion to the Championship in 2011.
