Huddersfield Town earned a promotion to the Premier League, courtesy of their stupendous run throughout the campaign which cultivated a playoff spot for them. Eventually, the Terries outclassed Reading to secure the uplift to the English top flight for the first time since 1972 and they thoroughly deserve to be in a jovial and elated mood at this stroke of the hour.
David Wagner constructed the team in a scintillating manner as he marshalled his troops pretty well. Having signed a new two-year deal with the club, it goes without saying that he has been handed the vote of confidence from the owners.
Considering that his next objective would be to ensure that his side doesn’t flirt with the relegation zone, he is occupied by the prospect of making new acquisitions to bolster his squad so that they can face the animosity of Premier League.
Huddersfield Town have already signed Aaron Mooy on a permanent basis after the Australian international impressed during his loan spell last term and have also lured Laurent Depoitre from FC Porto to the Kirklees Stadium. Wagner is in no mood to stop, as Jonas Lossl is the latest acquisition to their arsenal, who has been acquired on loan from German Bundesliga outfit Mainz 05 to cater to their goalkeeping needs in the upcoming campaign.
Lossl emerged through the youth ranks of Kolding IF and FC Midtjylland and has plied his trade for the senior side of the latter as well as for Guingamp and Mainz. Huddersfield Town also have an option to buy the one-cap Danish international on a permanent basis next summer, which might urge the shot-stopper to hit the right chords under Wagner to prove his mettle in arguably the toughest league in the world.
The Terries failed to re-sign Danny Ward from Liverpool owing to the fact that Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to strike the Welshman off his books and Lossl is unarguably a very astute signing after Wagner’s unsuccessful attempt to get hold of Ward. Last season, the 28-year-old accumulated 27 Bundesliga appearances to his name, whilst which he collected 5 clean sheets and made 50 saves.
Tall, excellent positioning awareness and ability to guard his territory with his quick reflexes, Lossl has truckloads of experience under his belt. Besides, he distributes the ball well, doesn’t lose his calm and composure in tight circumstances and reads the crosses and set-pieces quite well too. He would seamlessly get into the starting line-up of Wagner and at the onset, it looks like a brilliant signing by the Premier League newcomers.
