Huddersfield look at Best and Kelly

Huddersfield Town are considering moves for free agents Leon Best and Stephen Kelly.

Huddersfield Town have taken former Blackburn Rovers striker Leon Best and ex-Reading defender Stephen Kelly on trial.

Best is available on a free transfer after his contract at Blackburn was cancelled by mutual consent this summer.

The 28-year-old found himself out of favour at Blackburn last season and spent last term out on loan at Derby County and Brighton & Hove Albion.

Best made 15 substitute appearances for Derby without scoring before spending the second half of last season on loan at Brighton where he failed to scored in 13 appearances.

Best had a spell training with Queens Park Rangers earlier this summer, but a move failed to materialise.

Former Tottenham full-back Kelly is also looking for a new club after leaving Reading at the end of last season following two years at the Madejski Stadium.

The 32-year-old has a wealth of experience having played in the Premier League with Tottenham, Birmingham City, Fulham and Reading.

Huddersfield boss Chris Powell will cast an eye over the pair in training and could sign the Republic of Ireland internationals if they impress.

“Leon and Stephen are free agents and they are just training with us,” Powell told Huddersfield Town's official website.

“There are quite a few free agents around, which shows how the market is, and the two of them have had one day of training with us so far.

“There is nothing imminent and nothing more to say at this stage, they are just here and training with us.”
