Huddersfield Town and Preston North End are both admirers of Udoka Godwin-Malife and are weighing up a move to lure the Forest Green Rovers defender into the Championship, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World. 

Godwin-Malife has impressed for Forest Green Rovers this season in League Two, helping them into the driving seat in the race to secure play-off football on the final day this Saturday.

Huddersfield have previous for leaning on Forest Green to bolster their squad, having picked up Reece Brown back in the summer of 2019.

Carlos Corberan is likely to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements, too, with Richard Stearman, Christopher Schindler and Richard Keogh three senior centre-backs set to be on their way out of the club this summer.

In the case of North End, they are embarking on a huge summer.

The club are still to settle on a new manager for 2021/22 and have a lot of work to do in the transfer window if they are to improve on this season’s disappointing performance.
