In what has been a frenetic 24 hours for Huddersfield Town, they have wrapped it up with the signing of Scott Malone from Fulham on a 3-year deal with an option to extend it by a year.
They had started well in the transfer market this summer, having clinched their first scalp in the form of Aaron Mooy, the Australian forward from Manchester City on a transfer fee of £8 million along with a number of other high-profile arrivals. Now they are turning their eyes towards the development of their defence, and hence signed a player who can give their backline an added dimension in the new season.
David Wagner, the current manager of Huddersfield Town, under whom the club have made a comeback into top-flight football after a long time, approximately 45 years, is quite appreciative about the young left back and wanted him as a part of his line-up for the next season for quite a while, especially after having being impressed with the youngster when Fulham played against Huddersfield Town. The 26-year-old was instrumental in their last season, beating Huddersfield twice in both home and away legs in the Championship.
The English star joined Fulham from Cardiff City in the transfer window last summer and played a very important role in making his team reach the playoffs, where they were eventually beaten by Reading in the Semifinal. The player has gained quite a lot of experience by playing in an array of clubs over the years, including the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bournemouth, Millwall and Cardiff City before joining Fulham last season.
Huddersfield Town have been looking to sign a number of players from different clubs, as they have already signed Aaron Mooy from Manchester City, along with Laurent Depoitre, the striker from Porto, and Jonas Lossl, the goalkeeper on loan from German side Mainz.
The Fulham left back is the latest to join the ever-expanding list to ply their trade in the John Smith’s Stadium in the next term. He has been one of the players who is not only a good player at the back but also likes to come forward and chip in with crucial goals to contribute to his team as well. He has six goals under his belt to show for his offensive efforts and can be a handful in the attack as well. The 26-year-old is known for his darting runs into the heart of the opposition defence and provide assists for his teammates as well.
