Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark says it will cost in excess of £1million to sign any of the club's highly-rated youngsters.

Goalkeeper Alex Smithies and the versatile Lee Peltier have been linked with Leicester City, while fellow Championship side Millwall are reportedly keeping tabs on striker Jordan Rhodes.

However, after missing out on promotion from League One last season, Clark is determined to keep his squad intact ahead of another push for a place in the second tier.

Clark says he is under no pressure to sell any of his players and has outlined what it would take to prise any key members of his squad from his grasp.

No pressure

"Jordan Rhodes has just signed a new contract so there is no way we are letting him go," Clark told the Huddersfield Examiner.

"I have had a conversation with one person, manager to assistant manager, with regards to one of the other two and nothing else. That's as far as it's gone.

"You are talking seven-figure fees for each of the three of them, and not small seven-figure fees, but I have talked it through with the owner (Dean Hoyle) and the board and there is no pressure to sell. None at all.

"We want to keep them and if they are ready to go again in League One then we will happily keep them all.

"The only reason anyone will move on is if they let it be known they want to go, but I want to keep the squad as it is."
