Huddersfield Town’s coffers could be set for another boost this summer.
We understand that the club have a sell-on clause for former midfielder Oliver Norwood, and his excellent season for Reading is rumoured to have Premier League side Bournemouth sniffing around.
Town have already benefitted from the sale of one of their ex-players this season, pocketing a share of the fee Middlesbrough paid Blackburn for Jordan Rhodes’ services on the final day of the January transfer window.

And there could be more to come, with Town due to collect a cool £400,000 should Boro be promoted under the terms of the agreement – Boro are at Birmingham on Friday night.
Any deal for Norwood is unlikely to swell the club’s bank balance to the same extent, but it is believed Town would be due a cut of the fee should the Royals decide to cash in.
The Manchester United youth product left Huddersfield in August 2014 after making close to a century of appearances for the John Smith’s Stadium club.
After an initial settling-in period, the midfielder has become a key figure at the Madejski Stadium, and has played the most Championship minutes of any player at the club this season.
And with three goals and eight assists to add to a string of eye-catching displays, the latest rumours are that Eddie Howe is keen to snap him up this summer to bolster the Cherries’ midfield options ahead of their second season in the Premier League.
