HUDDERSFIELD TOWN are firmly in the hunt for Northern Ireland midfielder Oliver Norwood.
The Galpharm club are battling it out with Barnsley and Coventry to land the highly-rated Manchester United product.
Norwood, capped six times, has yet to play a first-team game for the Old Trafford giants but has caught the eye in loan spells at Carlisle, Scunthorpe and Coventry.
Town boss Simon Grayson tracked the 21-year-old’s form as Coventry fought unsuccessfully against relegation from the Championship last season.
And sources suggest he is pulling out all the stops to make Norwood his third close-season recruit after Crystal Palace frontman Sean Scannell and Dundee United left-back Paul Dixon.
Grayson is said to be impressed by the technical skills Norwood learned at United as well as his passing range and proven ability to perform at Championship level.
Burnley-born, he joined United as a seven-year-old and was handed a professional contract in 2009.
