Hello and welcome to our Huddersfield Town live blog for Monday, June 4 .

The Terriers made their first move in the transfer market last week, bringing in goalkeeper Ben Hamer from Leicester City.

The keeper signed a three-year deal in West Yorkshire and now Town will look to strengthen the outfield ahead of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Reports suggest their next capture will be Stoke City winger Ramadan Sobhi - who has reportedly left Egypt's training camp in order to complete a medical in West Yorkshire.

In addition to that prospective deal, Town have also been linked with a move for AC Milan star Andre Silva, who is thought to be attracting a lot of Premier League interest.

Stick with us here for all the latest news and rumours regarding Town, with the transfer window now open to Premier League clubs.

That's all, folks

Former Huddersfield Town loanee Danny Ward has been linked with a move to Swansea City.

The Liverpool stopper spent the promotion season on loan at the John Smith’s Stadium, endearing himself to Town fans with his performances throughout the campaign and in the play-offs.

But Ward failed to make an impact on his return to Merseyside, with the Sunday Mirror now claiming the goalkeeper could look to move away from Anfield in order to get regular game time under his belt.

The centre back was one of the Magpies’ standout players last season, putting the Toon’s Premier League rivals on alert.

Germany team

Germany have announced their squad for the World Cup.

Not sure what I’m more shocked by - Leroy Sane not making the cut or Christopher Schindler not getting the nod.

Another Stoke winger who has been linked to Town, Xherdan Shaqiri, has admitted he will leave the Potteries this summer.

In an interview with Swiss newspaper Aargauer Zeitung, the diminutive forward revealed he would leave the relegated side in this transfer window, with another Premier League side his preferred destination.

He said:

Yes, of course. It is no secret that I will leave the club.

I would love to stay in England, I think the league is perfect for me. It’s the best league with the best players, but I do not want to exclude anything.

Everyone wants to compete with the best, that was one reason why I chose the Premier League. And that’s why I want to take the next step now.

Arnautovic on Sobhi

Here’s what the former Stoke City forward had to say about the Town-linked winger after a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough in the 2016/17 season...

Ramadan is improving every game. He is like my little brother. I try to talk to him, he talks with me a lot and he’s an amazing player, that’s why we bought him. We know what he’s capable of.

He’s improving his English. He’s a young kid who wants to learn a lot and I appreciate him because it’s not easy to come from Egypt to England alone as a 19-year-old kid into this kind of pressure.

But he’s doing well and I’m very pleased with him. He has a big career in front of him but he can learn a lot more.
