Striker returns to St. Andrew’s

- James Vaughan returns to Birmingham City
- Striker loaned for remainder of 2015/16
- Move signals end of Vaughan's time at Huddersfield Town

Huddersfield Town striker James Vaughan has today returned to fellow Sky Bet Championship side Birmingham City on a Standard Loan until 30 June 2016 inclusive.  
Under the terms of the loan, he will not be available to play against Town for the Blues on 23 April 2016, or in the FA Cup should the two sides progress and meet. 
James initially joined Birmingham City on an Emergency Loan on 26 November 2015 and went on to make four starts and two substitute appearances for Gary Rowett’s team.
James, who joined the Terriers permanently in July 2013 after a successful season-long loan at the Club from Norwich City, is contracted until the end of the current campaign. The loan will bring to an end James’ career with Town.
The 27 year-old has made four substitute appearances for Town’s First Team this season, with the last coming under the Caretaker Management of Mark Lillis at home to Leeds United for half an hour. He has not featured under new Head Coach David Wagner.
In total James made 78 starts and 17 substitute appearances for the Terriers across four seasons, scoring 33 goals, and was named the Club’s Player of the Season in 2012/13.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner explained:
“James made it clear he would like to return to Birmingham and the details of his loan were correct for our club, so I was happy to let this happen.
“The loan period will take James up to the end of his contract at Huddersfield, so I’d like to wish him the best of luck.”
James scored some memorable goals for Huddersfield Town and became a real hero with supporters thanks to his all-action style. Everyone at the Club wishes James all the best for his future and thanks him for the good times with us.
