Huddersfield want to keep hold of Leicester City's Jermaine Beckford
Jermaine Beckford could be staying at Huddersfield Town if manager Simon Grayson gets his own way.
On-loan Beckford has scored three goals for Huddersfield in his six games for the club, including the winner in his side's 1-0 victory over Barnsley.
He has, however, missed the club's last five games because of a recurrence of a hamstring injury.
City's out-of-favour striker joined the Terriers on a 93-day loan deal at the end of September after their move to sign him on August 31 fell through just minutes before the transfer deadline, with Beckford in Huddersfield ready to complete the switch.

His loan runs out on December 29, and former City defender Grayson has declared he is pulling out all the stops to keep the striker at the John Smith's Stadium.
Grayson, who managed Beckford when he was in charge of Leeds United, said the striker was also keen to stay.
"We're working hard to structure a deal with his club," he said.
"There are two willing parties in ourselves and Jermaine and, hopefully, the third are interested too."
His comments come amid reports that Huddersfield's Championship rivals, and Beckford's former club, Leeds are interested in re-signing the 29-year-old.
Beckford scored 85 goals in 152 appearances during his time there after arriving at Elland Road from non-league Wealdstone in 2006.
