Huddersfield have confirmed that Jordan Rhodes is on Stuart Pearce's 35-man Team GB shortlist for the London Olympics.
The Scotland Under-21 striker scored 40 goals for the Terriers last term to help them to promotion to the Championship.
And Rhodes, 22, is now expected to find out in the first week in July whether he has made the final 18-man squad.
Huddersfield chief executive Nigel Clibbens told his club's official website: "Jordan is an amazing ambassador for Huddersfield Town and the football profession, with his great performances on the pitch complemented by his contribution to our community and the town off it.
"He is a top class individual and thoroughly deserves all the plaudits and success that is coming his way.
"The Football Association has decided not to make an official announcement over the 35-man squad, but has given individual clubs permission to announce their own players.
"Obviously we are tremendously proud of Jordan's achievements and wanted to publicly congratulate him on his inclusion."
Pearce has vowed to pick the best players available for his 18-man squad, which will be made up of under-23 players plus three over-age players and will be announced on July 6th.
The likes of David Beckham, Joe Cole and Welsh duo Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy have all reportedly been included in the squad.
