SOLIHULL MOORS giant Kyle Hudlin scored in the Vanarama National League play-off final on Sunday.
And now, the 6ft9 striker – the tallest outfield player in the UK – is in advanced talks with Championship side Huddersfield.

Hudlin signed for Moors in October 2020 on a two-year deal after banging in 25 goals in 22 games for Sunday League side Boldmere Falcons.
