Huddersfield Town clinched a promotion to the Premier League last season after their commendable run of form in the Championship. It was a riveting season for them and they thoroughly deserved to earn the uplift.
Under the tutelage of David Wagner, the Terries have started their campaign in the English top division in an appealing manner as they have already collected 8 points from their first 5 league outings and are currently placed 6th in the league table.
Seeing their confidence whilst plying their trade amongst the elite clubs of the country, it can be deciphered that they are going to leave no stone unturned in order to ensure that they remain inside the rendezvous zone. Wagner made some astute signings over the course of the summer transfer window as they lured the likes of Steve Mounie, Aaron Mooy, Tom Ince, Scott Malone and Laurent Depoitre to John Smith’s Stadium to beef up their arsenal.
The newcomers have gelled together really well but at the same time, Huddersfield Town are looking forward to strengthening their backline during the January transfer window to attempt to ensure that their screws remain tightened.
It has been evident that they aren’t willing to be complacent at all. As per one of the latest reports, Olympiacos defender Omar Elabdellaoui has been put on the radar of the former Borussia Dortmund II manager.
Elabdellaoui emerged through the youth ranks of Skeid and Manchester City, but he couldn’t cement a place for himself in the first-team squad of the blue half of Manchester. He was shipped out on loan to Stromsgodset, Feyenoord and Eintracht Braunschweig, before making a permanent move to the ranks of the Red and Whites.
During the January transfer window of 2017, he was signed by Hull City on loan and considering that he has entered into the final year of his contract, some teams are lining up to make a move for him.
Predominantly a right-back, the 25-year-old is capable enough of playing on the right side of the midfield as well. He has accumulated plenty of experience under his belt and has the requisite technical understanding of the game to ply his trade in the Premier League.
Huddersfield Town already have Tom Smith and Florent Hadergjonaj in their books to be engineered into the right-back position, but someone like Elabdellaoui would deepen their bench strength and owing to his potential, he can challenge for a place in the starting line-up as well.
