Huddersfield's on-loan striker James Vaughan has been named April's player of the month in the Championship.

Vaughan, on a season-long loan from Norwich, hit five goals in April to help Huddersfield retain their Championship status, including a hat-trick in a 3-1 win at Bristol City.

The 24-year-old in total scored 14 goals in 37 appearances for Huddersfield this season, firing five of them in the final three matches from which the Terriers took seven points to ensure another season in the second tier.

Vaughan established an impressive strike partnership with Jermaine Beckford and, although he has returned to his parent club, Huddersfield boss Mark Robins is keen to open talks with Norwich about the possibility of signing the forward on a permanent basis.
