Huddersfield Town reportedly interested in signing Norwich City’s James Vaughan on permanent deal

Huddersfield Town manager Simon Grayson is reportedly interested in signing Norwich City striker James Vaughan on a permanent deal in January.

The 24-year-old - on a season-long loan at the Championship club - scored the second goal in a 3-1 win over promotion rivals Blackpool on Monday night.

Grayson told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner: 'Signing James in January is a possibility. We've got him on loan until the end of the season anyway so that's an option.

'I've got a chairman who's willing to back me in the transfer market and he's done it previously. There's lots of options for us but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

'James is rightly flying with confidence. All he needed when we signed him in the summer was games under his belt.

'If he can have an injury-free season, he can be a major acquisition for us because he's strong, powerful and good in the air, and he was a constant threat for us against Blackpool.'
