Carlisle United midfielder joins the Terriers
- Kyle Dempsey joins Huddersfield Town from Carlisle United
- 19 year-old midfielder got 11 goals and 10 assists last season
- Terriers’ third signing of the summer transfer window
Huddersfield Town has today completed the signing of midfielder Kyle Dempsey from League 2 side Carlisle United for an undisclosed fee.
The 19 year-old, who was named Carlisle’s ‘Player of the Year’ following his first year as a professional in 2014/15, has signed a three year contract, with the Club having the option of a fourth season.
That accolade was earned after a breakout season that saw him grab 11 goals and 10 assists for Keith Curle’s team in 44 starts and three substitute appearances from his midfield berth.
Cumbrian Dempsey is a graduate of Carlisle United’s Centre of Excellence. He made his professional debut as a late substitute in a 3-0 win over MK Dons on 28 January 2014, with his achievements last season coming on the back of just four fleeting substitute appearances in 2013/14.
Huddersfield Town Manager Chris Powell today welcomed Kyle to the Club:
“We have been able to secure Kyle’s services amid other interest in him. He has been on the Club’s scouting radar for some time; the Club has watched him a lot.
“He embodies the type of player that fits with the Club; someone who can come in and continue to develop.
“I don’t view Kyle as a direct replacement for Conor Coady; he is a different type of midfield player and will complement the other players we already have in the central area.”
“As you can see from his record with Carlisle last season, Kyle carries a significant attacking threat. He’s an industrious player with good technical attributes, ability in set-piece situations and, importantly, the desire to succeed.
“To achieve what he did with Carlisle United in League 2 last season as a first year professional was very impressive and demonstrates the potential he has. He’s still learning, but we will give him the platform to keep improving.”
