Huddersfield Town have rejected Wolves’ approach to take Danny Ward on a free transfer, sources suggest.
The 23-year-old, who has just a year left on his contract, cost around £1m when he moved from Bolton Wanderers in 2011.
And the indications are that the John Smith’s Stadium club will look to recoup at least part of that fee if they decide to let him leave.
A number of Championship and League I clubs have made tentative enquiries as Monday’s 11.00pm transfer deadline looms.
Ward is with the Town party for tomorrow’s Championship game at Watford, where he scored a hat trick in last season’s 4-1 win.
So too is Sean Scannell, who is also coming out of contract and said to be interesting Millwall.
The former Crystal Palace player, however, is believed to be settled at Town and keen to try and establish himself as a regular this season.
The 23-year-old arrived for a reported £800,000 in 2012.
