Huddersfield Town are reportedly keeping tabs on Accrington Stanley forward Dion Charles, according to The Sun’s Tom Barclay.
Charles has been in fine form for the League One side this season, scoring 18 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions.
The 25-year-old – who made his Northern Ireland debut last month – is out of contract at the end of this season, but Accrington to have the option to extend it by a further year.
But according to Tom Barclay of The Sun, Huddersfield, as well as Derby County and Cardiff City, are keeping tabs on Charles ahead of a potential summer move.
Huddersfield have struggled to find goals on a regular basis this season, with Josh Koroma missing large spells of the season through injury, prompting Carlos Corberan into making the signings of free agents Yaya Sanogo and Oumar Niasse.
Here, we discuss Huddersfield’s reported interest in the forward…
It’s absolutely vital that Huddersfield freshen up their attacking options in the summer.
There’s been so much pressure on Fraizer Campbell for most of this season, with only the recent addition of Yaya Sanogo truly freeing him of that.
Charles is a striker that’s got a lot of goals under his belt in 2020/21, albeit in the lower league.
However, that shouldn’t stop Huddersfield making a move. They’ve had success like this with Karlan Grant and Josh Koroma in the past, so seem happy enough taking the punt on a lower league player.
It might not work out but, then, it might not be too much of a financial mistake picking up a striker from League One.
On the whole, I think I’d like to see Huddersfield go in this direction in the summer.
This could be a great move for Huddersfield Town.
