Championship new boys, Huddersfield Town have a sense of new found wealth and have been splashing their cash around like there is no tomorrow.
Terriers' mananger Simon Grayson has already prised Burnley target, Leeds United's Andy Clayton away from our clutches and brought the midfielder to the Galpharm for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £500k to £1m. Clayton was Huddersfield's fourth signing of the summer and Grayson has since added to that tally with the signing of Forest defender, Joel Lynch.
Could Burnley striker Charlie Austin be about to become their sixth?
Speculation has been fuelled this week in the media with rumours that Huddersfield are looking for a contingency replacement for highly rated striker, Jordan Rhodes. Rhodes who has attracted considerable interest from a number of Premier League clubs was widely expected to leave for pastures new although the latest gossip from the Galpharm suggests he might be staying afterall. The 22 year old Scotland international has racked up over 70 goals from 120 appearances since arriving from Ipswich Town in July 2009 and is certainly hot property.
Huddersfield though could be seeking to improve their striking department whether Rhodes stays or not according to some reports and the Sun this week suggested they are prepared to offer £2 million for Charlie Austin. There are more rumours too in the Sunday tabloids today so the speculation will not die down.
Burnley of course have tried to cool the speculation and certainly losing Austin would leave the club in a bit of a pickle with striker, Jay Rodriguez having already been sold to Southampton for £7 million earlier this summer.They don't have to sell, we are continually told so let's hope this will be the case for Austin who scored 17 goals for the Clarets last season.
