Huddersfield Town will remain calm over reported interest in centre-back Joel Lynch.

Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers are said to be keen on the 28-year-old Wales international.

But former Nottingham Forest man Lynch is under contract until the end of next season.

And Town have no need to sell for financial reasons, putting them in the driving seat in terms of any negotiations.

Rangers, who signed keeper Alex Smithies from Town for £2m last August, are in the market for at least one centre-back.

They have released long-serving former Crystal Palace player Clint Hill, now 37.

And Italian Gabriele Angela has returned to Watford after a loan spell at Loftus Road.

That leaves former Tottenham Hotspur man Grant Hall and versatile ex-Manchester City player Nedum Onuoha as the main options.

Rangers have also been linked with Celta Vigo’s Sergio Gomez.

Town chief David Wagner has brought in German centre-back Michael Hefele from Dynamo Dresden.

He already has skipper Mark Hudson as well as Lynch and the versatile Martin Cranie.

Wagner’s other signings so far are left-back Chris Low e, winger Rajiv van La Parra and Under 21 goalkeeper Luke Coddington, who is a development player and not a senior stopper.
