Huddersfield boss David Wanger has recently signed a three year deal, which will be keeping him in West Yorkshire until 2021.
He first took over the Terriers in November 2015, before quickly guiding them to the English top flight through Championship promotion in 2016-17 season. This was all after the momentous penalty shoot-out victory over promotion rivals, Reading at Wembley.
Coming off the back of his first year in the Premier League, the German manager succeeded in retaining his side’s Premier League status by finishing 16th with 37 points. Despite finishing lowest out of the three newly promoted sides, Wagner’s devotion to the club was further displayed with his comments on signing a new three year deal, “The decision to extend my stay at this club was not a difficult one.”
David Wagner’s summer recruitment has already begun with the singing of goalkeeper Ben Hamer on a free transfer. The 30-year-old goalkeeper is set to join on July 1 from Leicester City and provide competition for current number one, Jonas Lössl. Hamer agreed terms based on a three-year basis as manager David Wagner added how “Ben’s arrival adds more quality to our already strong goalkeeping department under Paul Clements,”.
After strengthening from the back, Town will be looking to bolster in other areas. Following relegation, Stoke City’s Ramadan Sobhi has completed a move to the Terriers leaving Egypt’s training camp in order to complete a medical. As for potential deals, Town have been linked with 22 year old Portuguese star, Andre Silva, from AC Milan; whose form has supposedly attracted interest from other of Premier League sides.
Rob Green is the only player who has officially been on the move from Huddersfield. He will leave the Terriers after the club decided against offering him a new contract.
