Terriers in for Stead...

Reports today suggest that Huddersfield have attempted to bring back former striker Jon Stead on loan till the end of the season.

The young striker is still a favourite at the Galpharm Stadium, having scored 16 goals in League Two during the 2003-2004 season.

Despite not finding the net for Sunderland this term, Stead's performances have not been too disappointing, suggesting that he could yet be an integral part of a Sunderland side that will attempt to bounce straight back up next term.

For this reason it is very unlikely Sunderland will sanction such a move, and the bid was probably simply a cheeky attempt by Huddersfield boss Peter Jackson whilst discussing full back Dan Smith's return to Wearside.

With 9 games left this season, Stead will be keen to remain at Sunderland in a bid to score his long-awaited debut goal. The luckless striker will be desperate not to suffer the ignominy of going through the whole season without getting on the scoresheet.

Stead is useless. I can't believe there was ever talk about him getting an England call up! Then again... Peter Crouch is in the squad.

from an outsider he might well seem useless. his overall play however is often impressive. look out for him to be a force in the championship next season. as for call ups for england, i'm not sure where you got that from!

I think he has always shown promise but instead (sorry for the pun) not always delivered - a bit like my postman. Will prove his worth next season.

hopefully! think a season in the championship will do him some good, hopefully restore some confidence!

You will see a different lad, he will enjoy it there. He will become a big fish in a smaller pond, mark my words.

fingers crossed!
