Huddersfield Town are believed to have had bid of around £5m rejected for Norwich City midfielder Alex Pritchard according to the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.

There have been reports in the last hour by The Sun that the midfielder could well be on his way to Huddersfield Town with the Championship midfielder set to be part of a £11 million deal.

Pritchard joined Norwich City in August 2016 on a deal believed to have cost around £8 million for the former Tottenham youth player. The tricky, quick and agile midfielder has impressed Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner though and he’s thought to be a keen admirer of the young midfielder.

Wagner himself told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner:

“Pritchard is not my player, he is a Norwich player.”

“I like him, but I have my doubts if he will play for us because I know how expensive British players are in this window.”

“If we are able to get some British players in they have to be reasonable prices.”

“At the end it is all about quality.”

“If it’s one new signing with the quality to help us, good. If it’s two, I’ll take two. We need to be focused on the quality.”

Huddersfield are currently sitting 11th in the Premier League and with the Sun reporting that Pritchard could well be on his way to West-Yorkshire on a four-and-a-half year deal, it could mean that Canaries boss Daniel Farke may have to act; and fast to get a replacement in the coming days.
