Jordan Rhodes featured just a handful of times during Warnock’s spell in charge at the end of last season but the veteran still has another year of his deal to run

Jordan Rhodes' second spell at Huddersfield Town has not gone to plan

Jordan Rhodes could be heading for the Huddersfield Town exit door this summer, according to reports. The Terriers survived by the skin of their teeth last term, with veteran manager Neil Warnock helping inspire a late season revival.

There remains uncertainty over a number of issues at the John Smith’s Stadium, with American businessman Kevin M. Nagle hopeful of a deal being completed whilst the managerial position also remains vacant after Warnock’s short-term deal expired.

With regards the latter, Alan Nixon of the Sun claims that the 74-year-old is set to accept the role once more – and he adds that one of his first decisions will be to offload veteran forward Rhodes. He wrote: “Warnock’s imminent appointment will also see striker Jordan Rhodes leave and Danny Ward is likely to stay on a new deal.”

Rhodes completed a fairytale return to West Yorkshire in the summer of 2021, following a forgettable spell at Sheffield Wednesday. But he has scored just nine league goals across the past two seasons, with his game time under Warnock minimal. The 33-year-old featured just four times after Warnock’s arrival in February, with only of those coming from the start.

He still has 12 months left on his Town deal, having signed a three-year contract upon his arrival but Warnock could ship Rhodes out to free up some room in his squad for new signings.

As for Ward, the club have been in talks with his representatives over a new deal to try and extend his second spell at Town into a fourth season. Town discover their league fixture schedule on Thursday, June 22.
