Reports suggest that Blackman could move to Huddersfield, who is said to be running the role over him in training.

Blackman, who left Chelsea without ever making a first-team appearance, has spent previous loan spells in the Broad Acres with Leeds United, Sheffield United, Rotherham United and Middlesbrough.

Blackman made 28 appearances for the Millers last term during their unfortunate relegation from the second tier.

He made two starts for Leeds in the EFL in his time at Elland Road in the first half of 2018-19, having spent the previous campaign on loan at the Blades, making 33 appearances in all competitions.

Earlier in his career in 2014-15, Blackman temporarily linked up with Boro and made a famous appearance in an epic EFL Cup penalty shoot-out against Liverpool at Anfield, which saw the Teessiders edged out 14-13 on spot-kicks.
