TOWN are among the clubs keeping tabs on hot Irish strike prospect Glen Fitzpatrick.
And while Town chief Peter Jackson was today playing it cool on any transfer talk, the out-of-contract Shamrock Rovers star - described by his manager as being "a bit like Teddy Sheringham" - said he fancies a move to the McAlpine.
Dublin rivals Shelbourne, who have just landed the Eircom League title, are keen on the 21-year-old, who netted eight times as Rovers finished seventh in a season which runs through the summer.
But Fitzpatrick, a product of the University College Dublin club who played Intertoto Cup football for Rovers this year, said: "Huddersfield appeals to me.
"I've never had a chance to play full-time in England, even though I had a few trials when I was younger.
"But I'm that little bit more mature now and I'd like to give English football a shot."
Rovers boss Liam Buckley, who is resigned to losing Fitzpatrick, said of the frontman: "He has great feet, he holds the ball up well and he has a great footballing brain - a bit like Teddy Sheringham!"
Jackson confirmed: "We know about Glen and I've spoken to him to find out his situation, but at the moment, that's as far as it's gone."
