Huddersfield Town value defender Ben Jackson at £1.5 million amid links to Scottish giants Rangers, according to Football Insider.
Huddersfield Town have struggled this season, sitting bottom of the league going into the World Cup break. They may be looking towards the January transfer window for reinforcements, but with that comes interest in the players already at the club.
One such player who is generating attention is left-back Jackson, who has quickly established himself as a first-team regular this season under boss Mark Fotheringham. The 21-year-old has played at left-back, left wing-back and left-midfield and his versatility has made him a vital asset for the Terriers, despite their poor form.
Rangers are amongst the sides linked to the youngster and have now found out they must pay £1.5million to secure his services. A January move could well be on the cards if they match Huddersfield Town’s valuation.
Potentially a good move for Jackson…
His current deal runs to 2024 but given the club are staring relegation in the face should they not turn their form around, Jackson may see this as an opportunity to secure an exit from the John Smith’s Stadium to a club who could potentially be in the Champions League next season.
The player will want to play at the highest level he possibly can and moving from a club at the bottom of the Championship to one the top two sides in Scotland makes for a huge stepping stone in Jackson’s career.
Of course this would come as a blow for Huddersfield Town, who would be losing one of their few bright sparks from this season. Yet if their valuation is met, they could use the funds to bolster their squad for the second half of the campaign in the hopes of putting some distance between themselves and the bottom three.
