Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Alex Smithies is being lined up as a potential replacement for Blackpool contract rebel Matthew Gilks.

20-year old Smithies continues to impress in England’s League One and could now find himself in the Premier League if and when Gilks leaves Bloomfield Road.

Gilks, currently out with a knee injury, has seen his contract talks with the Seasiders stall and could be on the way out in the summer, especially with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City interested.
