Huddersfield Town made their first signing of the summer yesterday as they sealed a deal for Will Boyle.
As confirmed by the club’s website, the defender has signed a two-year contract at the John Smith’s Stadium and will officially become a Terriers player when his current deal at Cheltenham Town reaches a crescendo later this month.
Huddersfield could potentially be about to back up this signing by swooping for another player who featured in a lower division last season.
According to Football Insider, the Terriers are closing in on sealing a move for Solihull Moors striker Kyle Hudlin.
Here, we have decided to take a look at what we know so far about this potential swoop and assess whether it is likely to happen…
What do we know so far?
As per Football Insider, Huddersfield are currently in advanced talks to sign Hudlin.
It is understood that Huddersfield are confident that they can get a deal over the line for Hudlin and are close to making a breakthrough in terms of negotiations.
Hudlin’s current deal with the Moors is set to expire at the end of June and he has yet to agree fresh terms with the National League outfit.
Is it likely to happen?
When you consider that Solihull missed out on promotion to League Two last weekend, Hudlin is unlikely to stay at the club given that he is attracting interest from Football League sides.

Therefore, with Huddersfield now pushing for a deal with the 21-year-old, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if he makes the switch to the John Smith’s Stadium.
During the previous campaign, the forward managed to find the back of the net on five occasions in the National League.
Whereas it may take Hudlin some time to adapt to the Championship given that he has never played at this level before in his career, there is no reason why he cannot eventually go on to thrive under the guidance of Carlos Corberan at Huddersfield.
