Huddersfield open talks for Brough

Danny Brough could be set for a move to Huddersfield, after Wakefield confirmed they are discussing a deal for the star scrum half.

Brough, 27, was heavily linked with a move across Yorkshire last season and could now finally be ready to switch to the Galpharm Stadium after Huddersfield opened negotations with the Wildcats.

Diane Maskill, the Wildcats’ Executive Director, said: “We have been discussing the possibility of new contract with Danny Brough and his agent since summer 2009 and during that time we made several offers, none of which proved satisfactory.

“While we were anxious to keep a quality player like Danny at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, we have reached point in the negotiations where we were no longer prepared to increase our final offer.”

Brough, who played for Scotland at the 2008 World Cup, has since committed himself to England, and is rated as one of the best scrum halves in Super League, possessing an astute kicking game.

Maskill added: “Huddersfield Giants have approached us concerning Danny and we are considering what they have said to us.

“Any deal would have to be in the best interests of Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and enable us to maintain or improve the quality of the team’s competiveness and potential.”

Wakefield have been linked with Hull KR stand-off Paul Cooke, who played alongside Brough under Wildcats boss John Kear when Hull won the Challenge Cup in 2005.
