In a great move for Brighton & Hove Albion, they’ve
managed to secure Huddersfield midfielder Aaron Mooy on a one-year loan deal.
Sports reports that the Australia international has signed for Graham
Potter’s side for a season, while also simultaneously signing a new three-year
contract with Huddersfield.
The reason for this is down to the player having been in the
final 12 months of his previous deal, and so the Terriers sought to protect
their asset rather than risk him leaving the Championship club for free next
For Mooy’s part, Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert told Sky
that the player wanted to again test himself in the Premier League, having
already impressed for Huddy in the two seasons that they spent rubbing shoulders
with the elite of the English football pyramid.
All in all, this means that a top-tier player gets to play
in the Premier League once more, Brighton have got themselves a fine – albeit
temporary – addition, and Huddersfield have maintained a strong transfer value
for one of their key assets.
The only downer for Huddersfield, of course, is that they
will be without their best player for at least the 2019/20 season.
