Huddersfield chief admits battle to keep Aston Villa target Grant

Huddersfield Town chief Mark Devlin expects Premier League interest to arrive for Karlan Grant.

Grant has netted 16 times in the Championship this season, form that has turned heads up and down the country.

The Birmingham Mail says Aston Villa, along with their Midlands rivals West Brom have been linked with Grant, with a reported valuation of around £15m placed on him.

"Let's be really honest, a guy like Karlan is going to attract interest - goalscorers will attract interest and I have no doubt Karlan will be feted in the summer," Devlin told YorkshireLive.

"We don't have to sell him and if Karlan decided he wanted to be part of our group longer term, then that would delight us.

"We have to look at that, though, when it comes to the time.

"At the moment, I am delighted to say Karlan is really throwing himself into his work, so to speak, and is doing everything he can to help us make sure we are nice and safe in the Championship."
