The World Cup-winning defender has been continuously linked with Town over the last few days, with reports suggesting he is due in Huddersfield for a medical this week.

German outlets Bild and Kicker have both moved the story on this week, with the latter suggesting Wednesday will be the day of the medical.

Should that be correct, that would mean we could see a deal over the line at the end of this week.
