Goal-a-game teen once linked with Liverpool and Chelsea to solve League Two injury crisis

Daniel Carr was also sought by Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United before joining Huddersfield Town. He will now spend a month on loan with Fleetwood Town.

In March a transfer battle ensued for an unlikely target - Dulwich Hamlet striker Daniel Carr.

Since being released as a winger by Reading FC he went on to become a superb striking force in the non-league system banging in the goals for the club that brought us such talents as Ian Wright, Alan Pardew and Marlon King.

Arsenal and Tottenham were credited with keeping an eye on his progress but it was Liverpool who first extended an interested arm to the talented forward, followed by Chelsea

Brendan Rodgers knew the player from his time working with the youth academy at the Berkshire club and was more than willing to give him a chance to shine. They took him in on trial and he even featured in an under-21 game against West Ham. However it appears he fell short of the quota after the interest soon diminished from Merseyside.

However any Premier League interest in his services was extinguished when Huddersfield Town snapped him up in April.

Now 19-years-old he is on the move once again today - but only on a one-month loan deal.

Fleetwood Town are chasing promotion from League Two this season - and are going the right way about it. They currently sit in fourth position - but just one point behind those above them in the table.

However an injury crisis has recently struck their striking department - leaving them in short shrift further up the pitch.

Jamille Matt has an ankle injury and David Ball was ruled out for a month with a shoulder injury last weekend - leaving manager Graham Alexander with just Jon Parkin and Emmanuel Dieseruvwe as his attacking options.

So he has moved to snap up Carr - who has yet to score for The Terriers in his three appearances for the club.

The Cod Army are now expected to install Carr straight away in a game against Mansfield Town this weekend - where he will look to show the Premier League suitors what they are missing.
