Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle has told BBC Radio Leeds that the club have rejected two bids from Derby County for midfielder Jacob Butterfield.
While he chose not to reveal the amounts that Paul Clement’s side had offered, he did confirm that they did not meet the club’s valuation of the playmaker who scored six goals in 46 appearances for the Terriers last season.
Butterfield established himself as a key player in Chris Powell’s team and was a key player in a Huddersfield side that struggled last season.
Former Real Madrid assistant Clement is on the lookout for a new midfielder after an injury suffered by Will Hughes and he has identified the former Barnsley man as someone who could aid the Rams’ promotion push.
With Town looking likely to sell goalkeeper Alex Smithies to QPR, manager Chris Powell will be hoping that his chairman will resist the urge to sell as he doesn’t want a repeat of their poor displays last term.
Huddersfield and Derby fans…Could Butterfield be a good addition? Can the Terriers afford to lose the midfielder? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
