Terriers’ recruitment drive continues

Huddersfield have completed their 12th signing of the summer by bringing in Switzerland international Florent Hadergjonaj on a season-long loan from Ingolstadt.

The 23-year-old was one of the best full-backs in the Bundesliga last season, despite his side’s relegation, and the Terriers have had to fight off a number of suitors from the German top flight to secure his services.

Hadergjonaj will initially move to the John Smith’s Stadium on a season-long loan although Huddersfield have an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.

Boss David Wagner is looking forward to working with Hadergjonaj, who will provide competition for captain Tommy Smith for a regular starting role at right-back.

“It was important in this window that we found a real competitor for the right-back position and, in Florent, we have exactly the right player,” said Wagner.

“Florent is one of the most exciting young right-backs in Germany and is a footballer who I believe will fit our system and style of play very well.”

Huddersfield, who have surprised many by winning their opening two matches of the new Premier League season, have also brought in the likes of Steve Mounie, Tom Ince and Jonas Lossl during the summer in a bid to avoid an instant return to the Championship.

The Terriers are next in action when they take on Southampton on home soil on Saturday and they are priced at 3.60 to win that match. The Saints are available at 2.10 and the draw is on offer at 3.40.
