Mandron – currently plying his trade his League One with Gillingham – is said to be on the radar of Huddersfield Town, with Cowley looking to bring some more firepower to the John Smith’s Stadium. The Terriers are not the only team said keen on Mandron, League One pair Peterborough United and Burton Albion are also reported to be holding an interest in Mandron.
Football Insider says Mandron his being watched by Posh in case they lose star man Ivan Toney. However, the club have insisted that they are determined to keep Toney and have slapped a big price tag on the talisman to fend off interested.
