HUDDERSFIELD Town are rumoured to be in the hunt for Championship striker Robbie Simpson..
The 24-year-old striker Coventry City striker is reported to have been the subject of interest from Town according to newspaper reports in the Midlands.
Town are said to have made an offer for the player along with newly promoted Peterborough United, who were also rumoured to be in the hunt for Tranmere midfielder Anthony Kay along with Town.
Although he has been in the Sky Blues side in recent weeks, reports say plans to strengthen the team’s attacking options mean he is not guaranteed regular first-team football at Coventry.
Simpson joined the club from non-league Cambridge United and as a result is believed to be on relatively low wages compared to his team-mates.
“The clause in my contract has happened,” he told the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
“I have had a letter saying that the club want to take that option up so I am pleased that they feel so highly of me to give me that extra year.
“So I have got one more year left and I can hopefully sit down with the chairman to maybe discuss new terms and we will see what happens in the next three or four weeks.”
It is believed that a central striking role, rather than a wing role in which he has been employed at Coventry, is what the player wants.
