Striker rejects Huddersfield approach

Motherwell striker Chris Porter has turned down the opportunity to join League One outfit Huddersfield. The Terriers are believed to have had a £200,000 approach for the 25-year-old accepted by their Scottish counterparts. However, the former Bury and Oldham man has indicated that he is not keen on a switch to the Galpharm Stadium. Porter is set to be out of contract in the summer, with Hearts keen to offer him a pre-contract agreement, and Motherwell boss Mark McGhee admits he does not expect the frontman to be on the move before the end of the season. He told the Scottish Daily Express: "I have spoken to Chris and as things stand he won't be going to Huddersfield. "We have given Huddersfield permission to speak to Chris, but he has indicated that it isn't really a move he fancies. "He came up to Motherwell to further his career and then to return to England at a higher level and he feels going to Huddersfield defeats that purpose. "I think his agent will speak to Huddersfield out of courtesy and unless they make him an unbelievable offer, I think he's likely to stay at Motherwell until the end of the season."
