The Terriers sit sixth in the Championship table after 16 games, following last season's dramatic play-off final penalty shoot-out victory.

Despite maintaining that survival is the only aim for this campaign, Grayson admits that due to Hoyle's backing, his side can achieve a lot more.

He said: "The chairman has certainly backed me. He is a chairman who is desperate for the club to do well. He wants to build a legacy at this football club.

"The structure is in place for it to be a big club once again, it's certainly moving in a positive direction."

Grayson added: "The aim is to make sure we are in the Championship next year. There is no added pressure. But if we can keep all the players fit and hungry, who knows what could happen?"

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
