Huddersfield make new bid for Wolves' Van La Parra as Boro eye move

HITC Sport understands Huddersfield have made a second bid for the winger.

Huddersfield Town have made a second bid for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Rajiv van La Parra, while Middlesbrough are weighing up a move for the Dutchman, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Van La Parra has been in and out of the Wolves side this season and has only recently returned to the club after a successful loan spell at Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 24-year-old scored two goals in six appearances for Championship promotion hopefuls Brighton and since his return to Molineux Van La Parra has started the last four games.

Van la Parra has been used up front since his return to Kenny Jackett's starting XI, but should Wolves succeed in bringing in some striking reinforcements before the close of the transfer window Van La Parra could again find himself down the pecking order at Molineux.

Huddersfield are keen on signing the versatile attacker and they saw their opening bid for the former Feyenoord man rejected.

The Terriers remain keen on landing Van La Parra and are understood to have made an improved offer as they look to persuade Wolves to do business for the former Holland Under-21 international.

However, they could face competition for Van La Parra with Middlesbrough keeping tabs on his situation as they consider making a move for player.

Middlesbrough are in the market for a winger after seeing a bid for Queens Park Rangers' Matt Phillips rejected and with their interest believed to be cooling on the Scotland international they could turn to Van La Parra with the flying wide-man understood to be on their list of targets.
