Huddersfield Town have transfer listed Lee Fowler by mutual consent.Huddersfield Town have transfer listed Lee Fowler by mutual consent after the midfielder signalled his intention to move closer to his family.
The 21-year-old joined Peter Jackson's side in 2003 although has failed to hold down a regular first team place at The Galpharm Stadium, another motivation to seek a new club.
Fowler has made just five league appearances so far this term, receiving a red card against Swindon, and is now looking to move closer to his home country of Wales.
"Lee wants to be nearer his family if possible and he's frustrated at not getting a regular first-team place this season," Jackson told the club's official website.
"With him being in the Wales Under 21 side and wanting to push into the full national squad, he knows it's unlikely to happen playing in our reserves.
"There are no problems between Lee and anyone at the club. We've talked things over and decided to circulate his name, and we obviously wish Lee all the best in the future."
The midfielder played a special part in Huddersfield's history as he kept his calm from the penalty spot to secure promotion against Mansfield last season, and the player will depart with no ill-feeling from the League One outfit.
"Everyone knows he has had his disciplinary problems with us and it's fair to say he hasn't had a run in the senior side," Jackson continued.
"But he will always have a place in the hearts of the fans because of those wonderful scenes in Cardiff last May when he scored the winning penalty in the play-off final shoot-out."
