Huddersfield Town have again reiterated their desire to bring on loan Nottingham Forest striker Jamie Paterson to the club on a permanent basis this summer according to The Huddersfield Daily Examiner.
The 24 year old joined The Terriers on a season long loan deal on 1 September 2015 with a view to a permanent deal and has gone on to score seven goals in 34 appearances for the West Yorkshire club.
The striker is thought to be enjoying life at The John Smith’s Stadium and would like to remain at the club next season while Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle has now reiterated the club’s position on the player, saying that The Terriers will be looking to make the deal permanent. Hoyle’s latest statement of intent backs up the comments made by head coach David Wagner back in February that he hopes to conclude a permanent deal for the striker.
Paterson joined Nottingham Forest from Walsall in July 2013 and has gone on to make 66 appearances at The City Ground scoring 13 goals. The player struggled to feature regularly for the Forest first team last season resulting in his loan move to Huddersfield Town.
Huddersfield Town have also confirmed that fellow loanees Emyr Huws and Jed Steer will be returning to their parent clubs at the end of the season. The club have stated that Emyr Huws will be ‘too expensive’ to sign on a permanent basis while goalkeeper Jed Steer will not be required with the club already looking at potential summer targets to play in between the sticks.
