Darren Moore has examined five key players who should be on Huddersfield Town’s radar in January.

FLW has examined five players who should be on Huddersfield Town’s radar in January. Huddersfield Town have played a few games under new boss Darren Moore.

Moore’s first two games saw the Terriers get two well-deserved points, but their unbeaten run came to an end when they met Birmingham City, who won convincingly.

Of course, Moore has taken over a team that has been moulded by the previous manager.

As a result, the 49-year-old will have to work with this group of players until at least January.

Huddersfield will be hopeful they can solidate themselves in the Championship this season, and Moore may want to make changes when January comes to make sure that happens.

So, here at Football League World, we have looked at five players who should already be on the club’s January transfer radar…

Tom Holmes Is Your Rookie Of The Year 2020/21 - The Tilehurst End

Tom Holmes
Holmes is currently on the books at Reading FC, and it is expected that he will leave the League One side in January after falling out of favour for whatever reason.

The defender is likely going to be one player that the Royals look to cash in on, and he should be someone the Terriers are looking at.

That is because he has shown in the Championship previously that he is very comfortable at the level and, at his age, is someone who can still develop and get better.

Huddersfield needs to look at strengthening their defensive options, and given his situation at Reading, Holmes should be looked at.

Callum Styles

Most people were surprised to see Callum Styles continue at Barnsley beyond the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old has excelled in the second division in recent seasons, and given that he was on loan at Millwall last season, it was assumed that he would go again, but this time on a permanent basis.

That, however, did not occur, and the midfielder is doing well with the Tykes. But, with January fast approaching, Huddersfield should consider bringing in Styles to bolster their midfield.

Moore’s midfield will need more goals and creativity, and Styles might be the perfect fit.

Dion Charles

Charles’ performances for Bolton Wanderers will not go unnoticed, and he is expected to be a wanted man in the January transfer window, as he was in the summer.

Moore could well be looking to add to all departments in January, and of course it will depend on what funds are available, but Charles should be one of the names at the top of the list for a possible striker arriving.

The forward is yet to play in the second tier, but given how he has done for Accrington Stanley and now Bolton, it seems only a matter of time before he makes the step-up

Jonson Clarke-Harris

Peterborough United’s Jonson Clarke-Harris might be another addition to the front line.

The 29-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season, and January could be an opportunity for the League One club to earn some money for the forward before he leaves on a free transfer.

Clarke-Harris has scored goals in both the Championship and League One, and wherever the Terriers are in January, Clarke-Harris may offer a genuine killer instinct for this Huddersfield club and keep them in the division for another season.

Joe Hugill

The final player Huddersfield could be interested in is Manchester United teenage attacker Joe Hugill.

Hugill will only be on loan from Manchester United, so this might be a cheaper option for the club to reinforce their forward line.

The 19-year-old has been prolific for Manchester United’s under-23 team for some time now, and it appears that the next stage of his development will see him loaned away.

It’s uncertain whether that will happen in January, but if Moore is looking to bolster his front line but is short on cash, a deal for Hugill may benefit everyone involved and add a new element to this team.
