EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Huddersfield Town and Preston are plotting moves to sign in-form Bristol Rovers striker Jonson Clarke-Harris in January, Football Insider understands.
Clarke-Harris’ goals and all-round performances have brought him on the radar of several Championship and top League One sides as they look to bolster their attacking options when the transfer window reopens.
A Huddersfield source has told Football Insider that boss Danny Cowley is expected to make changes to his side in January as he looks to lift them clear of trouble at the wrong end of the Championship and a new striker is one of his top priorities.
Preston are also admirers of Clarke-Harris and they are now monitoring his situation ahead of the January transfer window.
Bristol Rovers are reluctant to lose their star striker, but they are bracing themselves for interest if he continues his rich-vein of goalscoring form.
Clarke-Harris has picked up where he left off last season with seven goals in 10 starts in all competitions so far this season.
The 25-year-old is the top goalscorer in England’s top four divisions since the start of the calendar year with 18 goals since his move to Bristol Rovers on transfer deadline day last January.
The powerful striker has proved too hot to handle for League One defences this season, having won 38 fouls in nine games this term.
