West Bromwich Albion hav eyet to bid for the Huddersfield Town striker Karlan Grant, according to the Terriers manager Danny Cowley.
The 22-year-old has scored or made 16 goals in 27 games for Huddersfield this season, but was subbed at half-time as the Yorkshire side lost 2-1 at Barnsley last time out.
Asked about Grant's future at the club earlier, however, Cowley suggested that the timing of the West Brom rumour which followed is purely coincidental.
"There have been no offers," he told The Yorkshire Post. "There has been speculation, which can happen in transfer windows.
"Karlan is a young player, a young man and a good kid and it is never easy for players in this moment when there is a lot of speculation.
"All players now at all levels of professional football are private limited company and had a lot of entourage around them advising them. Sometimes people advise them in the right way, sometimes people advise them in the wrong way.
"So for us, this is normal. We understand it and have regular conversations with all of our players - Karlan included and we try to give them clarity and try to work with them, always."
According to The Birmingham Mail, Grant is on a list of targets drawn up by West Brom.
The Londoner was also linked with a move to the Hawthorns a year ago, before his £2 million to Huddersfield from Charlton Athletic.
But he is expected to cost significantly more than that if his exit is sanctioned this month.
It has been speculated that it will take an eight-figure offer to prise Grant away from the Kirklees Stadium.
