Huddersfield Town midfielder Oscar Gobern and winger Sean Scannell have been made available for transfer.Gobern and Scannell told they can leave

It was revealed that the club are willing to listen to offers for the pair in a Town fans Q&A session with Dean Hoyle at the Milnsbridge WMC on Monday night.

Town are also willing to let strikers Martin Paterson and Jon Stead leave the club.

The Terriers signed Gobern for a tribunal-fixed £275,000 fee, potentially rising to £400,000, in the summer of 2011.

Gobern's time with Town has been hampered by injuries.

Scannell was signed for a reported £800,000 from Crystal Palace in 2012 but has been an inconsistent performer since moving north.

Of his 80 appearances for Town, only 34 were starts.

Both are under contract for a further 12 months and so too are Stead and Paterson.

Stead returned to his home-town club after leaving the club nine years earlier to join Blackburn Rovers.

He returned on a free transfer from Bristol City last summer but struggled and was sent out on loan, first to Oldham Athletic then to Bradford City.

Martin Paterson also joined Town last summer on a free transfer from Burnley.

He fell down the pecking order following the signing of Nahki Wells in January and a supposed fall out with manager Mark Robins saw the Northern Ireland international shipped out to Bristol City on loan.
