Leicester City striker Jermaine Beckford loan deal set to be revived
Huddersfield will try to resurrect a loan deal for Leicester City striker Jermaine Beckford after the emergency loan window opens today, the Mercury understands.
Sources in Yorkshire say the Terriers have not given up on signing Beckford, even though the deal collapsed just two minutes before the transfer window shut last Friday.
Beckford had even arrived in Huddersfield on Friday night to conclude the deal.
Terriers boss Simon Grayson will try again to get Beckford, who played under him at Leeds.
Huddersfield see it as a priority to recruit a striker following the £8million sale of Jordan Rhodes to Blackburn.
If the Beckford deal can't be done quickly, they will switch their attentions to alternative targets.
