With Jordan Pickford firmly established as No.1 for both club and country, the Dane has so far been restricted to a watching brief since his summer arrival from Huddersfield Town.

But he told Tipsbladet: "Everton is one of Premier League's best clubs and so I go to it with an open mind and take up the competition.

"After all, I am drawn in to that, so I go for it. I believe 100 percent that I can become a first-team player here.

"Whether it is while Jordan (Pickford) is here or when he's gone, I don't know. But I believe it."

<![CDATA[​DONE DEAL: Huddersfield announce Cowley brothers appointment]]> <p>Huddersfield have announced Danny Cowley has been appointed as their new manager.<br></p><p>Cowley departs Lincoln City, along with brother Nicky, who will become his assistant at the Terriers.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/done-deal-huddersfield-announce-cowley-brothers-appointment-4296146?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BHuddersfield%2BTown'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Huddersfield have announced Danny Cowley has been appointed as their new manager.

Cowley departs Lincoln City, along with brother Nicky, who will become his assistant at the Terriers.

Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson explained: "I am delighted to be able to welcome Danny and Nicky Cowley to Huddersfield Town today.

"From the outset, David Webb and I knew how important this next appointment is for the Club. We undertook a very detailed and thorough process to identify the right person to lead the First Team forward, first outlining the qualities we were looking for in the right candidate and then establishing which managers matched them.

"Our research, due diligence and work resulted in a shortlist of four candidates, and Danny Cowley was number one. His track record is there for all to see he has led his previous teams to five promotions and several cup successes and our character references revealed a man who is one of the most detailed managers around; meticulous in his preparation, and highly regarded by his peers.

"Having approached Lincoln City and gained permission to speak to the Cowleys, they initially decided they wanted to continue the superb job they had done at that club and turned down the opportunity to discuss our job. At that stage we could have easily pursued one of the other options we had identified all of which are fine managers but David and I felt it was important to try and persuade them to talk to us. We firmly believed that they were the best men to take us forward, and we didn't want to give up on them.

"Our persistence paid off and when we spoke, there was an obvious chemistry. They believe in the way we operate as a Club and it affirmed that they would be a superb fit for us. As such, I'm delighted that they are joining us."

Cowley was initially cool towards Huddersfield 's first approach and was reluctant to walk out on Lincoln after three hugely-successful years with the Imps.

But Huddersfield owner and chairman Phil Hodgkinson maintained his pursuit of Cowley and persuaded him to come to the John Smith's Stadium over the weekend, says the Mirror.

Cowley, 40, arrives at Huddersfield with the Terriers in free fall and they are next to bottom of the Championship with just one point from their first six games.

Cowley will take over from caretaker boss Mark Hudson, who has not been able to stop the Terriers' slide down the table, losing all three of his matches.

The Lincoln City manager will NOT be joining the relegated side.

Per the Examiner, the 40-year-old had contact with Huddersfield, but the club could not agree any compensation with Lincoln City.

The new favorite to take on the Huddersfield job is former Southampton boss Nigel Adkins.

Huddersfield are currently in 23rd position in the Championship, having endured a difficult start to the season.

Grabara, who signed a new deal with the Reds in July, joined Town on a season-long loan in the summer. So far, the Terriers have already parted company with their manager Jan Siewert, and are yet to claim a victory in this season's Championship.

Grabara told the Huddersfield Examiner, I always believe in myself but the results have an effect on that.

We are not making as many points that we want to make. I can say what I want but I cannot change the results.

I was in an environment (at Liverpool) where they do not lose many games in a season but when I was before on loan I had an experience where we lost seven games in a row.

Maybe that's not something to be proud of but I know how it is already. I came here to help the boys and the boys are here to help me.

It sounds simple but we need to stick together otherwise it's going to be worse."

The on-loan Chelsea midfielder done brilliantly to evade the Cardiff City defence before releasing a venomous strike from outside the penalty area.

Unfortunately it wasn't enough for the Terriers with the match ending 2-1 to the Bluebirds.

20-year-old Chalobah will be hoping this form continues with Frank Lampard showing a willingness to promote youth at Stamford Bridge.

Hodgkinson wielded the axe after their loss to Fulham extended their winless run to 14 games.

Siewert did not appear after the match and remained in the dressing room with his players for over an hour after the final whistle before a club official confirmed his contract had been terminated".

Terriers' No 2 Mark Hudson is expected to become caretaker boss for the second time this year.

Ivan Cavaleiro dealt the fatal blow to Siewert as he went from zero to hero to earn Fulham a rare away win with his first goal.

It's a hectic time for everybody involved, no less than the managers themselves.

There have been times, when the deadlines used to be at midnight, I've left my offices at Huddersfield or Birmingham at 8pm thinking nothing more was going to happen, then on the journey home a deal appears from nowhere.

Whether that's a deal to get a player out or a player in and you're driving back to the office to try and be there and you have to do certain things that you wouldn't normally do, such as get the paperwork faxed to the players' home or the agents home because there's no time to do it between the two clubs, or medicals wherever the player is based because you haven't got time to get them to your football club.

We've had to do medicals when a player is travelling up and they might ring up and say they're caught in traffic and the club will say where are you and then call the nearest hospital to them where they've got contacts because the doctors and medical teams at the football clubs have got so many contacts around the country in terms of specialists and other doctors in hospital to get things done.

And that's the reason why deals these days can get done so quickly. It doesn't surprise me when I see so many deals happen at the last minute as they did on Thursday night.

It's not being able to rest and it's not thinking your work is done even if you're 99 per cent sure it has. You've gone home before the windows shut because everything's gone quiet and then all of a sudden bang things just start to tumble because there's a domino effect somewhere else and effects you.

The problem is a lot of people think and fans think that when teams are doing last minute deals, they're thinking they're panic buying, doing this because it's last minute.

But actually these deals have been in the works for weeks and what happens is the other clubs will try and hold out for something else and all of a sudden they decide to go ahead with the deal, so it might appear like it's last minute but it's not always the case.

You know what you need and you've got a list of them and you're working your way down and you might have a couple of maybes in there so you can't move onto the next one until you've got a definite answer for your number one target or number two target so you know the specific positions that you want to buy, unless there is a real one out of the blue whose a game-changer for you in terms of one you weren't earmarking that position but if you get a type of player who can change the whole dynamics of your group then that's the difference.

But certainly most of the time you know who you're targeting and what you're doing. It's an exciting time but it is definitely stressful as well.



PACE AND POWER AT ST. JAMES'

I'm excited by the acquisitions Newcastle have made because they've brought players in with power, pace and energy.

Steve has predominately been a manager who likes to play the 3-5-2 system and in preseason he's used that system with Miguel Almiron and Joelinton as his front two. What that tells me is that you've got a front two with unbelievable pace and power.

In Joelinton you've got someone who can hold the ball up and be an aerial threat but the two of them can also run in behind. They've got an asset that defenders hate at any level which is real genuine pace and in preseason they've combined really well. I think that all Almiron needs is some kind of goal. Whether he trips up and kicks one in, scuffs one in the net luckily, someone kicks a ball and hits him in the face and goes in, any kind of goal, because I think once that happens he'll be up and running. Joelinton has scored a couple in preseason already and Alain Saint-Maximin also brings that same pace and power.

I think there's going to be a little bit of change in the tactics from Rafa Benitez and that's normal when a new manager comes in. So it'll be exciting to see how the season starts against Arsenal who themselves have been very active in the transfer window as well.

What will happen on Sunday at St. James', the fans who are there, and there's talk of not being a full house. No-one knows what the end game will be in terms of attendance. But once the game kicks-off what I do know is that the people inside the stadium, and even the ones who don't go for whatever reason, they'll be sitting there on the TV's supporting the team, they'll be supporting the manager and his staff, because ultimately they want their club to do well, they want their team and their players and their managers to do well, they don't want them to fail.

So whatever else is going on, you know as a player that they are going to get the support of the fans. They'll just get their heads down and move forward and try and get the right result. It's not going to be easy.

For a club that doesn't affect the top-end of the table, it's a club that everyone likes to talk about, it's a club that's on everyone's lips, there's a lot of interest in the club.

And it's kept it's love from people because of the amount of support it gets, it's phenomenal really to think that the stadiums always full, I mean there's talk that this weekend that it could be the first time in a long-time that its not going to be in the Premier League and that's why they're saying it could make an impact.



ANOTHER LONGSTAFF

As I've wrote previously about Sean, I've been aware of Matty for a long time. Matty's a different player to Sean in that he's a smaller version, very aggressive and loves to get around people.

But he also has great ability and I've got no doubt he can make a huge impact. I think he's made such a strong impact in preseason that there's a strong chance he could be on the bench against Arsenal on the weekend.

I think what Steve has to decide is how close do they think he is to breaking into starting XI, because if they think he's still a little bit away what'll be really strong and a good thing would be for him to take the same route as his brother Sean and go out and get on loan and build a number of games to get experience.

If he thinks he's still some time away, because he's still really young, then you can't deny him that opportunity to get out on loan. U23 football is probably not Matty's aim anymore. It'll be a loan move. Possibly SPFL like Sean or a Championship club to then re-assess in January and see where he is. I think there will be no harm in him doing the same route as what Sean did that's for sure.




CONFIDENT FOR BLYTH SEASON

Blyth has been going great, despite losing our first game narrowly 2-1. We played well and should've got something from the game after getting denied a last minute penalty. But we held our own. I'm confident for the season ahead because obviously it's a new experience for a lot of the players and I and my staff as well, I'm really looking forward to it.

It's great being back on the training pitch and coaching these players, they're a really good bunch of lads, who are really young and willing to learn. A lot of them haven't played at the level before and their reaction has been great.

We've also signed Newcastle's Nathan Harker, who is a very, very good goalkeeper. He was excellent on his debut last weekend and I thought he was terrific in every aspect of his goalkeeping. We're delighted to get him on board because we had a little issue with one of our goalkeepers Mark Foden so it was imperative we got another goalkeeper signed and Newcastle came up trumps for us.
