Republic of Ireland Premier Division side Bohemians have rejected a bid from Huddersfield Town for the signing of striker Danny Grant, a report from The Irish Sun has claimed.
Grant enjoyed an impressive campaign last season, scoring seven goals in 17 appearances to help his side to a second-place finish in the Irish top-flight, and it now seems as though he is starting to attract attention from elsewhere.
According to the latest reports, Huddersfield have made their interest in Grant clear with an opening bid for the attacker, although it has been dismissed as falling well below Bohemians’ expectations.
As things stand, Grant is now out of contract with Bohemians, but regulations state that the club are still entitled to a six-figure compensation fee for the player if he moves away from Ireland, due to the fact that he is under 23 years of age.
This is an interesting one.
Huddersfield still look to be short on options upfront, something which despite showing promise at times this season, could cost them sooner rather than later.
As a result, you can understand why they might be looking to bring in more firepower in January, and while Grant may not be the first name that springs to mind to fill that role, it could be worth looking into.
The attacker is still young, so has the potential to improve on the promise that he has shown, and despite the compensation fee that will be required, could still be affordable for Huddersfield in what is a difficult financial period for the majority of clubs.
