Huddersfield Town have rejected an approach from Yeovil Town for Danny Schofield.

The Glovers have been active in the transfer market in recent days and wanted to buy Schofield for a nominal fee.

But Huddersfield boss Andy Ritchie admits he will not consider selling the striker-cum-winger to Yeovil.

"We have had an enquiry about Danny Schofield from Yeovil, but I knocked it back straight away," Ritchie told the club's official website.

"They wanted to buy Danny and they were talking about a nominal fee, but that did not make any difference because I do not want to sell him.

"I have spoken to Danny about it and he was quite happy we wanted him here and that I did not consider accepting the bid for a second."

Meanwhile, Ritchie admits that midfielder Chris Brandon is unlikely to return to Blackpool after ending the season on loan with the Championship new boys.

He added: "I think Chris' possible move to Blackpool is dead in the water now.

"The interest seems to have waned for whatever reason and I've spoken to Chris about it, as I've always said, I'm more than happy to have him here."

Another deal to elude Ritchie is the one for Lee Holmes, with the player now priced out of a loan move after Derby County's promotion to the Premier League.

Ritchie said: "We were looking at Lee Holmes from Derby on a long-term loan, but when they went up to the Premiership his contract was enhanced and it's now a little bit out of our range."
