According to the Liverpool Echo, Huddersfield Town are looking to sign Kieran Dowell as they prepare to return to the Championship.
The midfielder has been gaining a lot of experience in the second division over the past couple of years as he has spent the last two seasons on loan at Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United.
When he is at his best, the attacking midfielder is almost unplayable in this division.
His first few months on loan at Nottingham Forest were electric, but since then he hasn’t been able to recapture that type of form.
Dowell has the potential to be one of the Championship’s best players, but he needs to get back to the level he showed in late 2017.
He hasn’t been bad by any means since that point, though. His loan spell at Sheffield United ended in the Blades being promoted, and they want to re-sign him for their upcoming campaign.
Huddersfield were promoted in 2017 with a core of young players loaned in from Premier League clubs.
Aaron Mooy, Izzy Brown, Kasey Palmer and Danny Ward were all vital in the Terriers’ promotion campaign, and it seems that the Yorkshire outfit want to follow the same model but adjust it slightly.
Due to their two years in the top flight and the parachute payments they will be receiving for the next few years, Huddersfield are in a much better position financially than they were a few years ago.
This means that rather than loaning these men, they can get them on permanent deals and develop them to play in a way that suits the team.

Using this slightly adjusted policy of signing young Premier League players rather than loaning them will benefit the club massively as they will be able to keep their most important players if they are promoted to the Premier League again.
