According to a report from The Telegraph (as cited by the East Anglian Daily Times), Huddersfield Town are interested in a deal for ex-Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith, with his deal with MLS side Colorado Rapids poised to come to an end.
Defender Tommy Smith left Ipswich Town in January 2018 to move to America and join MLS outfit Colorado Rapids. Now, with his deal set to come to an end in the New Year, he has returned to England.
Smith is said to be training with former club Ipswich Town’s Under-23s side and heading into the January transfer window, he is being eyed up by Championship side Huddersfield Town. The Terriers have struggled with a number of injuries in their defensive department over the past few months and manager Danny Cowley is said to be eyeing up Smith as a possible transfer target.
Since coming through the youth academy at Ipswich Town, Smith has built up a wealth of experience at Championship level. He spent time out on loan with the likes of Stevenage, Colchester United and Brentford before making a name for himself in the first team at Portman Road.
Along the way, Smith played 267 times for the Tractor Boys, scoring 23 goals and laying on 11 assists in the process. He has played almost 250 times in the Championship and would bring some experience to Cowley’s defensive ranks. The Terriers have had to use midfielders in the backline recently and the arrival of Smith would provide some much-needed cover for Cowley.
