Royals target Terriers goal machine.
READING have offered Huddersfield £2million and defender Sean Morrison in a bid to land goal machine Jordan Rhodes.
Rhodes’ goals helped the Terriers gain promotion to the Championship but is keen on testing his skills in the Premier League.
Morrison finished the season on loan at Huddersfield and boss Simon Grayson is keen to bring him back to Yorkshire.

Reaing boss Brian McDermott is closing in on Russian international Pavel Pogrebnyak but still feels the need to bring in further attacking reinforcements and a move for young Scottish international Jordan Rhodes is a sensible and cost effective avenue to consider.
The 22 year old Huddesfield goal machine was in sparkling form last term, netting and astonishing 40 goals to help the Terriers into the Championship but the former Ipswich Town man may find himself gaining another promotion and into the English top tier with a move to Reading.
McDermott’s side could well do with an injection of firepower as the Royals were heavily dependent on goals from the midfield last term, indeed Reading’s top scorer in their title winning campaign last term, Adam Le Fondre, only managed 12 goals.
The addition of Sean Morrison into the bargain may act as a good bargaining chip, especially if boss Simon Grayson feels he is unlikely to retain the services of Rhodes this summer.
Centre back Morrison showed great form during his loan spell at Huddersfield, making 22 appearances for the Yorkshire side last term.
