YEP journalist responds to question about Leeds and 12-goal Championship striker

Huddersfield are likely to demand a “big” fee for Karlan Grant if Leeds United become interested in the 22-year-old striker, according to Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth.

On Wednesday afternoon, the reporter was asked about Grant after the Terriers forward was linked with a move to West Brom in the January transfer window.

However Smyth has suggested that if Huddersfield were to cash in on their top goalscorer this month then they would likely demand a fee that would be too high for Leeds to match.

The Birmingham Mail reported earlier on Wednesday that West Brom had become interested in Grant as Slaven Bilic aims to bolster his striker options before the current transfer window slams shut.

There was no suggestion how much the former Charlton striker would cost but there’s no doubt that he would be interested in a move to one of the Championship’s top two clubs if they put an offer in.

However Grant has been super important for Huddersfield this season with him scoring 12 goals and supplying four assists in 27 Championship appearances.

Smyth is right to suggest that the Terriers would want a big fee for the forward who is bound to be a key asset in their bid to avoid relegation to League One.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites appear to have turned some heads at Southampton with their newest offer for Che Adams.
