The loan window closes in just two weeks' time and Football League managers up and down the country will be scrambling frantically to ensure they are well-equipped for the next month.

Because once November 27 passes, clubs will have to wait until the January transfer window to make any more additions to their squads.

While signings at this stage can only be temporary fixes, they may help to plug a gap if injuries or suspensions occur and, in Huddersfield Town's case, a signing cannot be ruled out.

Last week's loan signing of Diego Poyet from West Ham United has helped bolster the midfield numbers but manager Chris Powell has already openly conceded that his squad remains light in certain areas.

With the addition of Poyet exciting fans due to his Premier League calibre, here are 20 other possible players who could be of interest to the Terriers in the final fortnight of the loan window.

Check out our gallery or the list below to see which top-flight stars we chose!

Arsenal - Chuba Akpom

Although listed as a first-team striker on the club's website, the 19-year-old is unlikely to find many first-team opportunities soon with the Gunners having exited the Capital One Cup at the first hurdle.

Akpom scored freely at the start of the season with the Arsenal Under-21's outfit - netting six goals in his opening four matches - and will be determined to prove himself after unsuccessful loan spells at Brentford and Coventry City.

He also brings with him a fair bit of showboating, for good measure...

 

Aston Villa - Matthew Lowton

The return to form of Alan Hutton at right-back has put paid to any chances the former Sheffield United prodigy had of making the position his own and he has had to settle for just three first-team outings this season.

He has reached something of a crossroads in his Villa Park career and a fresh start could be beneficial for all parties, with the Villans believed to have fielded some tentative loan enquiries from Championship clubs in 2013/2014.

Burnley - Cameron Howieson

At just 19, Howieson is able to boast international experience as well as being the youngest-ever Kiwi to line up in a Football League match and is the youngest Clarets first-teamer since Jason Harris in 1986.

Howieson is a graceful left-footed playmaker who was plucked from the Lincoln-based Asia-Pacific Football Academy in 2010 and looks ready for the next step in his development - Championship football.

Chelsea - Lewis Baker

A highly-sought after midfielder who has attracted admiring glances from Championship clubs after recently being called up to the England Under-21 squad and taking his place on the Blues' bench for their Capital One Cup win at Shrewsbury Town.

He previously captained the U20 side in a 6-0 thrashing of their Romania counterparts in September and also scored eight goals for the U19's before that.

Crystal Palace - Stuart O'Keefe

Fits the bill in terms of the qualities manager Powell looks for in his midfielders due to his combative style and is certainly an attainable option as manager Neil Warnock weighs up whether to offer his first-team minutes elsewhere in his return to full fitness.

Would offer Town much-needed protection in the middle of the park and can operate in a defensive midfield role as well as slightly further forward.

Everton - Tyias Browning

Having already made an impressive first-team breakthrough in the Merseyside derby this season, there will be many who feel the 20-year-old is already accustomed to Premier League life.

He also appeared in a 2-1 defeat at Manchester United but with the Toffees' injury crisis easing and Seamus Coleman and Tony Hibbert in his path, Roberto Martinez may feel the defender is better-served getting minutes under his belt.

Hull City - Harry Maguire

It has been a frustrating time at the Tigers so far for the former Sheffield United central defender, who is already angling for a loan move away from the KC Stadium after failing to dislodge either of Curtis Davies or Michael Dawson.

Steve Bruce is receptive to the possibility of a loan but will not entertain a potential return to the Blades as he feels he would benefit greatly from a spell in the second tier.

Leicester City - Tom Lawrence

Signed from Manchester United in the summer despite a couple of cameo appearances at Old Trafford but has been unable to gain any minutes to date.

He and talented wideman Anthony Knockaert - who has been linked with a move away from the club - impressed in a recent 6-2 win for the Under-21's against Manchester City, where Lawrence scored twice and set up another.

Liverpool - Cameron Brannagan

Jordan Rossiter has been earmarked as something of an heir apparent to Steven Gerrard in the Reds midfield but Brannagan is one of the club's other most exciting young talents.

Plays as more of an attack-minded midfielder than Rossiter and has an eye for goal, with his recent strike for the club in a 4-1 UEFA Youth League defeat at Real Madrid catching the eye of many.

Manchester City - Jose Angel Pozo

Dubbed the "Mini-Messi" and it is not difficult to see why due to his speed, close control and agile, diminutive frame, but may find first-team opportunities hard to come by at present.

Capped his debut with a goal in the 7-0 demolition of Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest are reportedly keeping an eye on his progress.

Manchester United - Marnick Vermijl

The Belgian right-back returned from a season-long loan spell at NEC Nijmegen harbouring ambitions of placing more pressure on Rafael for the right-back spot, but even in the right-back's absence through injury, there have been no chances afforded to the 22-year-old for him to prove his worth.

He appeared earlier this season in the 4-0 Capital One Cup humbling at MK Dons and may have to be on the move to make the step up from U21 football.

Newcastle United - Shane Ferguson

A talented and versatile operator anywhere down the left flank, the addition of the Northern Ireland international could help Powell to plug any gaps in his squad.

His last club football came back in April earlier this year for Birmingham City during a loan spell and he has been frozen out at St James' Park since returning in the close season.

QPR - Bruno Andrade

The R's do not have the biggest squad in the division and will be loathe to lose any first-team options, so Portuguese winger Andrade would appear the best bet for a temporary switch from Loftus Road.

He penned a new one-year deal during the summer but has, as yet, been unable to show he is ready for Premier League action and could be shipped out on loan.

Southampton - Ryan Seager

The latest off the seemingly endless conveyor belt of talent at the St Mary's Stadium and though left-back Matt Targett is receiving most of the attention at the moment, Seager is expected to be one of the club's next best striking prospects.

He recently struck twice for the Saints Under-21's in a 3-1 win at Liverpool but manager Ronald Koeman may want to see how he can cope with the rigours of Championship football.

Stoke City - Wilson Palacios

It may appear a slightly ambitious target, but if Palacios can be convinced to lower his current exorbitant wages, there will be a string of suitors in the Championship for his signature.

The Potters are actively seeking to move him on in the upcoming window, if not sooner, but has plenty of top-flight experience to offer.

Sunderland - Charis Mavrias

The Black Cats are encouraging the Greek winger's push for first-team inclusion, but the fact he has failed to feature at all this season would appear to speak volumes.

Gus Poyet reportedly fielded enquiries for the former Panathinaikos wideman, who can also play at full-back, last term but he would be make a very useful addition.

Swansea City - Jay Fulton

The talented midfielder arrived in the January transfer window from Falkirk and was afforded a first-team chance towards the back end of last season under Garry Monk.

But a combination of a knee injury and new midfield personnel being drafted in have halted his impact this season and he is currently one of the players who could be considered available for a brief spell elsewhere.

Tottenham Hotspur - Cristian Ceballos

Arrived from Barcelona in the summer of 2011 but the tricky attacking midfielder has barely featured and spent last term on loan at Portuguese outfit Arouca, where he made 24 appearances and scored twice.

The Spaniard is unlikely to make his mark at White Hart Lane anytime soon due to the abundance of attacking midfielders at Mauricio Pochettino's disposal, but his goal against Norwich City for the Spurs U21 outfit in a 3-1 reverse at Norwich City underlines his quality.

West Bromwich Albion - Chris Baird

The Baggies' current stance is that they remain unlikely to loan out players, but with interest from Fulham and Baird unlikely to want to just sit on the sidelines, a move makes sense.

Baird has played just three times for the west Midlands outfit since joining in the summer, with two of those in the Capital One Cup and the other coming on the opening day, he has failed to settle at the Hawthorns.

West Ham United - Joey O'Brien

Having already sealed the signing of Poyet, why don't the Terriers make it a double raid on the Hammers by getting in a player who can operate more or less anywhere across the back four or, indeed, in midfield if required.

A knee injury for the Irishman opened the door to Carl Jenkinson to cement his place at right-back, while Aaron Cresswell continues to impress on the other side, leaving O'Brien with nothing more than a substitute role at this present time.
