Terriers on red alert for Grujic

Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield are on red alert after Marko Grujic's agent admitted the Liverpool midfielder should go on loan to another English club.

Zoran Stojadinovic has told Serbian newspaper Blic that Grujic needs to leave Anfield on loan in January and play more first-team games after struggling to break into Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

Huddersfield could be at the front of the queue for his services given Terriers boss David Wagner’s friendship with the Liverpool manager.

The 21-year-old will be well known to Wagner after scoring for the Anfield club in Liverpool’s 2-0 Bill Shankly Trophy win over Town last summer.

Grujic has made just 13 appearances since his move from Red Star Belgrade in January 2016, with Stojadinovic saying he will not allow his client to make the same “mistake” as Lazar Markovic by going on loan abroad.

“Grujic has to go somewhere in January in a loan, in a team where he will play,” Stojadinovic said.

“It must be an English club, so as not to make a mistake like Lazar Markovic did. Had Lazar been my client, I would never advise him to leave England.

“He changed the country, the style of football, the temperament, the climate, and therefore his return to Liverpool was an impossible mission.

“To return to Grujic, he is very much appreciated in Liverpool and therefore he did not go anywhere because they did not want to let him go.

“But he needs more minutes in the field and that’s why the loan is the best solution for him in January to return to Liverpool after his return to the starting line-up.”
