According to an Examiner Live report, Huddersfield Town are considering a move for former Rangers loanee Andy King.

The 31-year-old midfielder signed for the Gers on a season-long loan from Leicester City back in August but failed to force his way into the team.

He failed to make a single start and made just five substitute appears, before returning to his parent club earlier this month.

Despite being a legendary figure amongst the Leicester supporters for playing a part in League One, Championship and Premier League-winning campaigns during his time with the club, there’s no chance of King finding a way into their current starting XI, with Brendan Rodgers’ team currently third in the English top flight.

Therefore, he’s expected to head out on loan again before the end of the month, and Examiner Live suggest that Huddersfield Town are readying a move.

 

The Terriers were relegated to the Championship after finishing bottom of the Premier League last season, and are currently languishing in 20th in the second-tier.

That makes them a good fit for King right now.

He struggled to break through at Ibrox due to the outstanding form of Steven Davis, Ryan Jack and Glen Kamara. However, he should face no such issues at Huddersfield.

Not only are the Yorkshire club underperforming, but while they have talented young midfielders, there are no senior internationals to compete with, in the centre of the park.

After months without proper game time, King will be hoping to find a club where he can slot straight into the team and put his Ibrox woes behind him.
