MIDDLESBROUGH’S move for Huddersfield ace Jordan Rhodes has hit a snag.
Boro boss Chris Wilder was planning a deal for their ex-striker, 32, who was out of favour under former Terriers manager Carlos Corberan.
On his former boss, Rhodes told SunSport in May: “He doesn’t get close to us on a human level but definitely does on a professional one.
“There are meetings every day before and after training. We have one-to-one time, too.
“It’s always made clear exactly what the manager wants. There’s never a day we don’t interact with him.”
But Town’s new gaffer Danny Schofield likes Rhodes and the experienced Scot is happy to work under him.
Rhodes played just 28 times for Huddersfield last season.
The Scot found the back of the net four times across all competitions and featured in the build-up to the Championship play-off final.
Rhodes netted the winner against semi-final opponents Luton, becoming Huddersfield’s unlikely hero.
He got on the pitch at Wembley against Nottingham Forest for 23 minutes but failed to help the Terriers stage a comeback.
