Huddersfield Town continue to be strongly linked with Wolves winger Rajiv van La Parra.

Some reports suggest a loan is close, and could even be completed before Saturday’s home Championship clash with Burnley.

It is believed that any deal will include provision for a permanent transfer this close-season.

The 24-year-old Dutchman has long been of interest to the John Smith’s Stadium club.

The former Heerenveen player, who can also operate as a striker, was strongly linked with a move during the January transfer window.

But nothing materialised, and he turned out for Championship rivals Wolves at the John Smith’s Stadium on February 20, when Town won 1-0.

A product of the Feyenoord youth system, van La Parra played his first senior games in France with Caen.

He had a three-year stint back in Holland with Heerenveen, winning Dutch Under 21 honours, before joining Wolves in 2014.

Van La Parra has been in and out of Kenny Jackett’s side this season, and had a six-game loan spell at Brighton, scoring twice.

He is well known to Town’s football operations chief Stuart Webber, who previously worked at Molineux.
