Huddersfield Town: 3 more players the Terriers should swoop for

Huddersfield Town have been one of the most active teams in the Championship so far this summer, with some seven new arrivals already through the doors of the John Smith's Stadium so far this summer.

In spite of this, over a fortnight has passed since they completed their last signing when Chelsea starlet Levi Colwill was announced as a Huddersfield player, joining the Terriers on a season-long loan deal from the West London outfit.

While Huddersfield did put in a solid showing in their opening pre-season friendly against Harrogate Town at the weekend, it's clear that they still lack a bit of strength and you envisage that their transfer activity for the summer isn't quite finished yet. 

The likelihood is that Carlos Corberan's side will bolster their options further between now and the culmination of the window and with that in mind now felt like an appropriate time to take a closer at three players Huddersfield should seriously consider swooping for.

Matt Crooks

An extremely wanted man, there are a handful of clubs fighting for the signature of Rotherham United's combative midfielder Matt Crooks this summer, including the likes of Derby County and Ipswich Town. A standout performer for the Millers last season, the former Northampton Town star had arguably the best campaign of his career, which included six Championship goals. A goal record only bettered by two Huddersfield players last season for reference, both of whom were attackers (Josh Koroma and Fraizer Campbell).

An instrumental figure in the midfield for Huddersfield last season was the talented Dutch youngster Carel Eiting, who has since returned to Ajax at the expiration of his loan and has subsequently signed for Belgian outfit K.R.C. Genk. So with his departure, Huddersfield's midfield is looking a bit low on numbers particularly midfielders who carry an attacking threat, so it's critical that the Terriers swoop for one between now and the end of the summer.

While it appears that the previously in exile Reece Brown is a part of Huddersfield's plans for this season, it would remain advisable that the West Yorkshire outfit look to add another option and Matt Crooks could be exactly what they need.

Crooks will need no introduction to the Huddersfield Town faithful, having graduated through the academy ranks with the Terriers almost a decade ago and would even go onto make a single League appearance before departing in 2015. The 27-year-old has since come on leaps and bounds however and really demonstrated his Championship pedigree last season, so he's a player that really should be on the Terriers radar and one they should attempt to bring back to his former stomping ground.

Josh Sims

Another player who Huddersfield should take a closer look at this summer is former Southampton winger Josh Sims, who is now a free agent and would prove to be a budget-friendly signing for the Terriers.

Sims was released by Southampton this summer and has been linked with numerous teams so far this window, including League One duo Charlton Athletic and Portsmouth, the latter of whom are managed by ex Terriers boss Danny Cowley.

While these two clubs could prove to be interesting proposals for Sims, they can't offer him Championship football and you'd imagine it won't be long before an outfit from the second-tier joins the race for the 24-year-old.

Sims plied his trade at Huddersfield's Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers last campaign, on loan from Southampton and while the winger failed to hit the heights at the Keepmoat Stadium, it remains evident he has talent and perhaps Carlos Corberan could be the best coach to unlock it.

Morgan Rodgers

Under Carlos Corberan, Huddersfield have become a really attractive option for Premier League teams to send their exciting young prospects, as revealed by Levi Colwill's recent switch to West Yorkshire.

With this in mind, you would surely think that the Terriers will be in discussions with numerous Premier League outfits over more players to loan for the new season.

One player Huddersfield could really work wonders with is Manchester City's teenage sensation Morgan Rodgers, who is surely destined for a season of Championship football, off the back of a stellar campaign with League One outfit Lincoln City.

Rodgers will undoubtedly have his admirers from the second tier, but the Spanish connection between Carlos Corberan and Pep Guardiola could pay dividends and it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that the two parties could strike a deal that would surely get Huddersfield Town fans off their seats.
