Huddersfield Town are reportedly keen on signing Leicester City midfielder Andy King, who has spent the season on-loan with Rangers so far.
Danny Cowley is eager to add some experience to his side after seeing key players be ruled out through injury, such as Tommy Elphick who has been ruled out for the season. The club have moved to remedy this by bringing in Sheffield United centre-back Richard Stearman, but they still need to add experience this window.
The Terriers’ recruitment policy before the arrival of the Cowley’s was very much based on European signings from the appointment of David Wagner and his successor Jan Siewert, with little long-term success following.
While the Terriers are currently operating with some very talented midfielders in Juninho Bacuna, Lewis O’Brien and Trevoh Chalobah, they appear to be keen on bringing in players with the experience that can help lift them away from a relegation battle this season.
One player that is now being linked is Leicester City midfielder Andy King, who has recently returned back to the Premier League club following his loan spell at Scottish giants Rangers ending.
According to the Examiner, the 31-year-old is a target of Cowley’s and could link up with his fellow Premier League-winning former teammate Danny Simpson at the John Smith’s Stadium.
He left Rangers following a lack of game time and will most likely be available for another loan, having spent his entire senior career on the books with the Foxes.
Can you name all of Huddersfield’s recent Players of the Season?
Having signed Emile Smith-Rowe last week, King would add the other dimension needed in Huddersfield’s midfield which is the ball-retention and experience in possession that they have lacked under Cowley with their current midfield.
At 31-years-old, he still has lots to offer and would be a very smart signing for the Terriers, adding a lot of character to the dressing room alongside Stearman who arrived recently too.
