Huddersfield Town are plotting a summer move for Josh Ruffels, according to reports from Yorkshire Live.
After finishing in 20th position last term the focus for Carlos Corberan’s side is on improving the squad in order to kick on and push towards a safe mid-table position at the very least.
With funds limited throughout the Championship it seems that the Terriers are keen to exploit the free agent market and that’s why a move for Ruffels could be pursued.
The Oxford United man has enjoyed an excellent season in League One after making 47 appearances in all competitions, scoring six and creating six more for Karl Robinson’s side.
Ruffels faces an uncertain future, however, with his contract due to expire in the coming weeks.
With no extension yet agreed it could pave the way to a permanent exit with Huddersfield an option that can offer his a route into the Championship.
The Terriers won’t have things all their own way, however, with Nottingham Forest also said to be keen on a move for the 27-year-old left back.
This could be a really astute signing for Huddersfield Town.
Bolstering their defensive line is going to be a real priority this summer and in Josh Ruffels there’s a player who can really benefit the club in both defensive and offensive situations.
As well as being a solid defender, the 27-year-old has a good record of scoring goals and creating opportunities which means that the full-back could be a great all-round threat.
The fact that he’s available on a free transfer as well, just makes the move even more appealing.
