Huddersfield Town midfielder Scott High has agreed a move to SPFL side Ross County before today’s deadline, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke from Football Insider.
The 22-year-old is set to undergo a medical with the Scottish club after the two clubs agreed on a deal to take the midfielder north of the border.
Who is Scott High?
The midfielder is a product of the Huddersfield Town academy and has previously enjoyed successful loan spells with the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Rotherham United and Concord Rangers.
The former Scotland U21s international has made 50 appearances for Huddersfield but has only featured once this season and was left out of the squad for all four of their league matches so far.
A poor start from the Terriers
Huddersfield Town have picked up just one point from their opening four league games so far this season, sitting 23rd in the Championship. Their only point came in a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough.
The side has scored just two league goals all season, with one of them being an own goal from Middlesbrough’s Dael Fry and an improvement is desperately needed from Neil Warnock’s side.
As for Ross County, they’ve won one of their first three league matches so far and travel to Kilmarnock on Saturday hoping to recover after their 2-0 loss to Rangers last weekend.
What’s been said?
Pete O’Rourke hasn’t specified whether the deal is permanent or on loan, but he has stated that a deal between Huddersfield and Ross County has been agreed upon.
Scott High has shown a lot of promise with Huddersfield and out on loan, but if he isn’t being selected despite his side’s poor start, it was always likely that he’d go out on loan.
If Huddersfield gain a fee, it could be used to bring in another player before the 11 p.m. deadline but we await to find out what Neil Warnock has planned for his side.
