Beckford's early Christmas present to Town Fans

JERMAINE BECKFORD has given Huddersfield Town fans an early Christmas present after he agreed to extend his loan spell with the club until the end of the season.

The Leicester City striker, 27, has been in good form for the Terriers when he has been able to play. The striker has 3 goals in 8 Championship games thus far but has been frustratingly injured during his initial 93 emergency loan deal.

Beckford had been due to return to Leicester at the end of December, and his staying will surely be a boost to Simon Grayson and his hopes of moving back up the table.

Beckford will be unavailable for the meeting with parent side Leicester City on New Year's Day at the King power Stadium.

Beckford spoke to

'This decision came naturally, as the Manager and the players have shown a lot of faith in me. It feels like the right place to be right now.

'The reaction of the fans always plays a part in this sort of decision too, because they are the fabled 12th man. For the Huddersfield Town fans to take me in like they have done is a contributing factor to me wanting to extend the loan.

'The injury has been frustrating though, to put it mildly; I'm fortunate enough that I've never really been injured throughout my career. To have scored in half the games that I've played in so far is a nice feeling, but at the same time I would have liked to have scored much more. There's lots of time left in the season though.

'As the Manager has said, everybody's main aim here is to stay in this division; if we can do that, everyone will be happy. Personally I feel we have a little bit more than what's needed simply to stay in this division and without putting any pressure on any of the boys, I don't think we'll be far off the Play-Offs.'

I think we could all see on SKY TV the passion Beckford has to win, and for this club, for him to stay for the rest of the season shows the ambition of the club and the progress we have made since returning to this level.

Happy Christmas for us all indeed!
