The Sun says Bournemouth are ready to rival Wolves for Grant in the January transfer window.

Terriers boss Cowley already admitted he is not "scared" of clubs showing interest in Grant.

He said: "I only worry if other clubs don't want my players because it's a bit like having a girlfriend, isn't it?

"If you've got a girlfriend nobody else wants maybe you question why she's your girlfriend, so I think you want a girlfriend and a wife who other people look at.

"It's the same for the players. You want good players and if you've got good players with an excellent attitude and work ethic and high quality, then it's natural that other people would want them.

"We're not scared of that: we want that, and we know that if we are able to get our players into a place where they're playing at their best then they're always going to attract interest."

Sent on loan to the John Smith's Stadium in the summer, the 20-year-old has been an ever-present between the sticks for the Terriers.

"Maybe next year, maybe the next international break - I haven't got a clue to be fair!" he said. "I am not focused on that to be fair.

"I am only 20 but I started playing when I was 18 at Under-21 level, so it's not really a massive thing for me now.

"I have started being captain now, so I have responsibility for the group - so I need to not only look after myself but look after everyone else as well.

"That makes it a little bit different, and hopefully I can make it good."

Mooy is feeling happy and settled into life on the south coast following his summer season-long loan switch from Huddersfield Town.

He said, I feel good at the moment and sharper each and every day.

I always try my best and sometimes it does take time to adapt to new things, but I feel good at the moment and I'll keep fighting to get better with every week.

It's a new style for a lot of people here and it's one I like. It's the most enjoyable way to play football when you have the ball, and that's what we want as players - when it goes like it did at the weekend, it makes it even more enjoyable.

I feel settled down here now, it took a few weeks to get into a place, but my family is here with me and are enjoying it too, so that makes me happy."

The result means that it is another week spent at the bottom of the Championship for the Potters.

Manager Nathan Jones had already spoken about the security of his position before the game.

Now it appears that he is only a matter of time from getting the sack, given the club's poor run of form all season.

It was a tight game between the two Championship sides, with both teams having chances to score first.

But eventually it was Juninho Bacuno who came off the bench to seal the win for the Terriers away from home.

The Sun says the former Leicester City fullback has agreed a deal with Huddersfield until the end of the season.

Cowley wanted experience in his squad to get the Terriers out of trouble and turned to 32-year-old to provide competition at right-back.

Huddersfield currently sit bottom of the Championship with just one point from eight games and are six points adrift of safety already.

Jan Siewert was axed in August after a run of one win in 19 matches - which included relegation from the Premier League - before Cowley and brother Nicky joined from Lincoln earlier this month.

I think Steve Bruce would have wanted his team to play that way. He certainly wouldn't have wanted the 71 per cent possession to 29 per cent possession ratio in favour of the away team. In the first-half Brighton were totally dominant and in saying that if you look over the course of the game Newcastle probably had as many clear cut chances as Brighton.

The chance that Miguel Almiron had is one that a striker with confidence puts down the side of the goalkeeper into the corner of the goal. Instead he just fired it straight down the goalkeeper's throat. That's a player who is trying desperately hard to break this goalscoring duck. He's got such a brilliant work ethic for the team, the reports you get from the training ground is that he works ever so hard on the pitch and I think everybody that is associated with the club are willing Almiron on to get this goal because I think if he gets the first one, his confidence levels will rise and he'll go on a bit of a run.

I know Brighton had their own chances and they were the dominant team. So I think all in all it was a disappointing performance and a disappointing weekend because I think Steve Bruce and his staff were probably expecting three points. The positive thing out of it is that they haven't lost the game, they've kept the clean sheet that will help the defenders and the goalkeeper and then obviously they've got a point from a performance that probably didn't warrant it.

The problem they've got now is they've got extremely tough league games in the next three. They've got to start to picking up points because it's getting really tight at the bottom there in terms of there being five or six teams where one or two wins can get you out of the relegation zone and on the other hand two or three losses puts you right in there and gives you confidence issues.


DELIGHTED FOR ANDY, BUT

I was absolutely delighted to see Andy Carroll back in Newcastle colours, but the problem we've got is everyone is hanging their hopes on him because of the season we've had.

It's a big call because of his injury problems, he's not going to be straight into the firing line in terms of starting games. It's going to have to be a gradual process with Andy working up his match fitness.

He got 10-15 minutes against Brighton and I think Steve will be trying to use him from the bench and maybe giving him a little bit longer with each appearance, then seeing how long it will take before he believes he is ready to start.

But Andy has obviously lifted the mood around the club and around the city. All I'd warn is that there's a lot of pressure on him because everyone is hanging their hopes on him to be the one that turns things around for the club.


HUDDERSFIELD

I've seen the two games since Danny Cowley took over and I totally agree with his sentiments from what he said after those games: it's a club that has forgot how to win.

It's been that long. It's a group of players, I think he used the words, that play the scoreboard rather than the game, so even when they go ahead they are worrying about getting pegged back, and if they get overtaken it seems to effect their mentality and confidence.

I thought for an hour they did great against West Bromwich Albion, it's always a tough place to go the Hawthorns. But then as soon as West Brom got back to 2-2 there looked like there'd be only one winner and that ended up being the case.

Danny has come out and said he feels the team isn't fit enough to play the way he wants to play for 94, 95 minutes. It's a really tough period for the club. The manager is trying to get his ideas across, it's not going to happen overnight, especially if he wants to change so many things.

Reports stated that ten days leading up to the game Danny gave the players so much information, so you could worry about it being overload for them. You just hope that they can get this first win sooner rather than later because the longer it goes on the longer it will just frighten the life out of everyone in terms of fans, players, staff, because everyone starts losing their confidence and wondering where the next result is coming from.


SOUNESS WAS RIGHT ABOUT MAN UTD

I think there is a good chance that it could be the worst ever Manchester United squad in the Premier League era without a doubt.

I was really disappointed with their performance against West Ham United. The three guys in the Sky Sports studio - Graeme Souness, Roy Keane and Jose Mourinho - know a hell of a lot about winning major trophies and what it takes, and they were quite scathing and rightly so on the performance level that Man Utd delivered against West Ham.

I thought it was quite inept, quite flat to be honest. All you expect from a Man Utd team, even in the games that they've lost, you expect them to be up and at you, creating numerous chances, playing with lots of a tempo, lots of speed, hitting you on the break, you're always worried even when you're in front that they can come back and hurt you because of their pace.

They just look like a run of the mill Premier League team at the moment. People are talking about them breaking into the top-four, I would say that you've got to worry about them getting into the top-six at this moment in time, never mind the top-four, because I think their performance levels are quite average at best.


NOBLE RIGHT WHERE HE WANTS TO BE

The answer to Mark Noble joining a bigger club is tough when you're playing for the club that you love and support and you're playing every week and you're classed as one of the main men.

He's been a terrific ambassador for West Ham. You can see he loves the club. When they've had the times of turmoil and disappointment, he's always been the one that steps up and comes to the fore, whether that has to be communicating with the fans or on the pitch.

He's the leader for those West Ham supporters and their fans - and the group of players who are in the dressing room would understand what the club means to play for West Ham because of Mark Noble.

Am I surprised he hasn't been in the England set-up? Yeah I probably am. But in terms of playing for a big club, I don't think he'd be too bothered or interested in that. He's living his dream so I don't think moving anywhere else would've been of any interest to him.

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."
