Defender making permanent move
Liam Ridehalgh will this week rejoin Sky Bet League 1 club Tranmere Rovers on a permanent deal.
The 22-year Academy graduate has spent the last three months on loan at Prenton Park, making 17 starts and scoring one goal for Ronnie Moore’s side.
Ridehalgh will now make his move to the Wirral permanent this week on undisclosed terms, but to allow him to play for Rovers at home to promotion-chasing Wolves this afternoon he has today temporarily rejoined them on loan.
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins commented:
“Liam is a good professional, a great person and has been at the Club for over a decade, but at this stage of his career he needs regular football and this move will allow him to get that.
“Tranmere Rovers is a good club playing in a very competitive League and we hope Liam can play a big role for them in the second-half of their season.
“On behalf of everyone at the Club, I’d like to wish Liam all the best for the future.”
Liam departs Huddersfield Town having made 26 appearances for the Club in the 2010/11 season, with his senior experience further complemented through subsequent loans at Swindon Town, Rotherham United and two separate spells at Chesterfield.
Liam joins the ranks of Huddersfield Academy players developing their careers in the Football league alongside the likes of James Berrett (Carlisle United), Joe Skarz (Rotherham United), Tom and Nathan Clarke (Preston North End and Leyton Orient), Michael Collins, David Mirfin (both Scunthorpe United), Simon Eastwood (Blackburn Rovers), James Burke (Bury) and Lucas Akins (Stevenage).
