Huddersfield Town completed the signing of England Under-20 international Demeaco Duhaney on 17 August 2018.

Capped twice by the Three Lions at Under-20 level, Demeaco is a pacey and athletic defender who usually features at right back, although he has previously played at left back too.

From Fallowfield in Manchester, he joined the Manchester City Academy as a five-year-old and progressed through the ranks before signing a two-year scholarship in the summer of 2015.

He was a regular in the City side that reached the 2017 FA Youth Cup Final, whilst also playing consistently in the UEFA Youth League and in the Premier League 2 for City’s Under-23 side.

More recently, Demeaco joined up with Pep Guardiola's First Team squad during the pre-season tour of the United States in the summer of 2017, playing the final 18 minutes of a friendly against Spurs in Nashville.

His senior competitive debut soon followed as he started all three of City’s games in the Checkatrade Trophy, whilst he was also an unused substitute for a Carabao Cup game at Leicester City and a Champions League game at Shakhtar Donetsk.

His Town debut came in the Premier League, starting the 1-0 home win over Wolves in February 2019, before making his first Sky Bet Championhsip start in a West Yorkshire derby against Leeds United the following season.

He's also gained further senior experience through a loan spell with Boston United in 2019.
