Ambitious move for City striker mooted
Huddersfield Town are interested in signing Norwich City striker James Vaughan on a permanent deal in January.
Terriers boss Simon Grayson talked about sealing a permanent deal for the ex-Everton striker after his impressive display against Blackpool last night - in which he scored a header and terrorised the home defence.
The 24-year-old is on a season-long loan at the Championship club anyway, but the way he is playing he is bound to attract other clubs, and Grayson may want to head them off by getting him signed up before May.
Grayson told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner: "Signing James in January is a possibility. We've got him on loan until the end of the season anyway so that's an option.
"I've got a chairman who's willing to back me in the transfer market and he's done it previously. There's lots of options for us but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
"James is rightly flying with confidence. All he needed when we signed him in the summer was games under his belt.
"If he can have an injury-free season, he can be a major acquisition for us because he's strong, powerful and good in the air, and he was a constant threat for us against Blackpool."
