Is Huddersfield`s Jordan Rhodes a target for Mick McCarthy's Wolves?
I've been left slightly baffled by this one, according to the Daily Mail 'Wolves have joined the chase for Huddersfield`s Jordan Rhodes'.
Now there is nowt wrong with that, he looks a good prospect on paper at least, but why would we join the chase days after the transfer window closing? Why not join the chase when you are actually physically able to sign the chap?
Rhodes has scored 29 times in 28 games this season and our Mick sent scouts to see him in the flesh for their weekend draw against MK Dons according to the paper, which probably resulted in this article.
(Incidentally Rhodes has scored 14 goals in his last 9, only failing to score in 2 games and the MK Dons game was one of the ones he hit a blank in!)
Our scouts could have been looking at anyone in reality, but Rhodes has been on our radar before so it could be a fair assumption.
Two years and four months ago I wrote this article entitled Wolves to sign the Colossus of Rhodes?, back then he was just 19-years-old and had joined Huddersfield Town 3 months earlier from Ipswich.
Since then he has gone on to score 74 goals in 128 games, which is one heck of a record and unsurprisingly he has been getting attention from clubs all over the country.
Vital Wolves Comment: The link to him isn't at all surprising, just the timing. If we were really interested in him, why wait until now? If you had a keen interest you would have made a move a week ago, now we have to wait till the summer and who knows who will be sniffing around him if he hits another 20 goals this season.
