Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner admits it may be difficult to sign Norwich winger Alex Pritchard, despite reportedly increasing their transfer bid.

The Terriers reportedly made an initial £5m bid for the Englishman earlier in January and have now tabled an improved offer of £11m, but Wagner remains pessimistic about securing Pritchard's services.

"I like him but I have my doubts if he will play for us because I know how expensive British players are in this window," Wagner told The Yorkshire Post.

"If we are able to get some British players in they have to be at reasonable prices. At the end it is all about quality. If it's one new signing with the quality to help us, good."

The former England U21 international signed for the Canaries from Tottenham in 2016 and has since made eight Championship appearances, scoring one goal and providing two assists.
