Pilks set for Premier switch

Town have confirmed holding talks with at least one top-flight

club, with Norwich believed to be the frontrunners for the

23-year-old’s signature. “Pilks deserves his chance to perform on

the biggest stage in England,” said Town chairman Dean Hoyle. “I am

proud of the small role the club has played in helping him develop

his talent and now making that dream possible for him. “A deal

isn’t sealed yet but if Pilks goes, he leaves with all my best

wishes and thanks for all he has done for the club, together with

the goodwill of everyone here at the club.” Pilkington, who scored

25 goals in 107 appearances for Huddersfield, extended his contract

until 2014 in December but announced last week he wanted to leave.
