HUDDERSFIELD Town striker Jon Stead says there are 125 reasons why he wanted to play under Mark Robins.
That’s the number of goals notched for English clubs by the Town manager , who has this week recruited both the 30-year-old frontman from Bristol City and Northern Ireland striker Martin Paterson from Championship rivals Burnley.
Robins, whose teams included Manchester United, Norwich and Leicester, has made it clear he wants to bring in further forwards.
That’s led to a rash of speculation, and while sources suggest reports linking the club with Reading’s Adam Le Fondre, who played under Robins at Rotherham, are well wide of the mark, Town remain keen to recruit former loan star James Vaughan from Norwich on a permanent basis.
Stead, who witnessed Vaughan’s finishing prowess at close quarters when last season’s 14-goal top scorer notched a hat trick in April’s crucial 3-1 win at Bristol City, said: “The club have made it clear there will be other new arrivals alongside myself, Martin and Adam Hammill.
“We’re all keen to find out who they might be, and there’s no doubt Town are a big attraction these days.
“We are an ambitious club with a great set-up and chairman, and we have a go-ahead manager who was a very good player. He has a clear vision on how he wants his side to play, and as a striker, why wouldn’t you want to be managed by him?”
