Huddersfield Town are back in for Barnsley full-back Robbie Williams after ending an interest in trialist Jamie Mullan.

Williams was close to joining The Terriers earlier in the summer, only for an injury to put the deal on hold.

However, Huddersfield boss Andy Ritchie has confirmed that talks have been resumed as he looks to seal Williams' signature.

"I can confirm that talks have been taking place between the two clubs," Ritchie told the club's official website.

"I have never made any secret about being interested in signing Robbie, but it is crucial that the deal is right for the club."

Deal not right

Though Williams could become a Huddersfield player, Mullan has failed to convince Ritchie he is worthy of a deal.

The former Manchester United winger, who trained with Derby in pre-season, has not been offered a contract by The Terriers.

Ritchie added: "Jamie has got something about him, but he still needs to develop at this stage and it wouldn't be the right deal for the club or the player.

"We need someone who can slot into the side straight away and so we won't be taking things any further."
