Fenerbahce have submitted a bid for Huddersfield’s Mathias Jorgensen, according to Turkish outlet Takvim.
It is believed the Turkish giants have offered £3.5m for the Denmark international, and that is now being considered by The Terriers.
The defender is out of favour under manager Jan Siewart having played just four times under him, and both player and club will be happy for Jorgensen to move on.
However, Town are unlikely to let him go for a price below his valuation. The £3.5m offered matches the price Huddersfield paid for him two years ago, and having played 62 matches for the club they may accept the bid.
Jorgensen has served Huddersfield well and was an important defender in their survival year, but he has been the topic of much transfer discussion this summer, with Celtic previously looking like they would make an approach.
The 29-year-old has a year remaining on his contract too, and has apparently already spoken to Fenerbahce, which means this deal looks likely to go ahead if the clubs reach and agreement.
This is a deal Huddersfield should accept. He is not part of the manager’s plans and £3.5 is a reasonable offer for a player of his age and quality, and the club could be considered fortunate to receive such a generous bid.
The deal would mean they haven’t made a loss on the player whilst allowing reinvestment in other areas for players who have a desire to still play for the club. Jorgensen is unfamiliar with the Championship so there is a clear criteria for Siewart in looking for his replacement.
