Martin Paterson remains on course for a move to Orlando City.
But the Northern Ireland international won’t be the first frontman with Huddersfield Town connections to ply his trade in the USA.
Back in 1974, the North American Soccer League rosters included Kevin Lewis at Washington Diplomats and Ian Robins at Denver Dynamos.
Signed from Liverpool in 1963, former Sheffield United player Lewis scored 15 times in 52 games for Town before heading to South Africa in 1965.
Nine years later, he wound up at Washington, with the Diplomats later recruiting ex-Town players Mick Barry (1975) and Roy Ellam (1976).
Robins spearheaded Town’s memorable Fourth Division title campaign of 1979-80, when he top-scored with 27 goals.
In total, he notched 67 times in 176 games in between joining from Bury in 1978 and retiring in 1982.
He was in the middle of an eight-year stint at Oldham Athletic when he summered in the States.
His teammates at Denver included former Town midfielder John Milner and future manager Stan Ternent.
In 1978, Bobby Campbell began a second spell at Town after playing for Vancouver Whitecaps.
He had caught the eye of Town boss Mick Buxton by netting nine times in 13 games for the Canadian club.
Campbell’s fellow Whitecaps included former Derby County duo Kevin Hector, once of Bradford Park Avenue, and Alan Hinton.
His tally in those two Town stints was 13 goals in 41 games.
Bob Newton came through the ranks at Town and featured in the team which made it to the FA Youth Cup final of 1974.
He made 49 first-team appearances, scoring 12 goals, before a move to Hartlepool United.
During his time in the North-East, he played for New England Teamen in 1980, then followed the franchise club to Jacksonville, Florida for the following campaign.
Last but certainly not least in the American list comes another Town youth product, Frank Worthington.
The star of the 1969-70 Town side who won promotion to the top flight, he totalled 48 goals in 192 games before an £80,000 move to Leicester City in 1972.
Worthington won eight caps as a Foxes forward, and his later travels took him to a string of clubs, including Philadelphia Fury in 1979 and Tampa Bay Rowdies in 1981.
His Philly teammates included Alan Ball, and while at Tampa, where he scored 11 goals and claimed 16 assists in 26 appearances, he played alongside future Town coach David Moss.
