The 22-year-old's record-breaking 40-goal season has helped propel Huddersfield to their third straight play-off campaign and second successive final, while alerting a host of Premier League clubs to his prodigious talent.

Fulham are the latest to reportedly make an offer for a player who has registered five hat-tricks this season, including all four against Sheffield Wednesday - for whom father Andy is goalkeeping coach - and five in a 6-0 rout at Wycombe in January.

When told of Fulham's £3.5million offer, Town boss Simon Grayson quipped: "Which leg is that for?", while Rhodes himself is equally dismissive of a big-money move away from West Yorkshire. He said: "It's not in my powers or in my thoughts for anything to happen in the future.

"I'm just concentrating on being a Huddersfield Town player and concentrating on the game on Saturday against Sheffield United. You guys can make up the stories or whatever they might be, rumours or whatever. They don't tend to affect my mindset.

"I can only affect what happens on the field and I've tried to block everything else out really and treat it all very much the same. I just try and do as well as I can in training everyday and give my all. I try to keep learning and better myself, whether that's physical or mental, and I try to make myself a better person as well."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
