CONTRACT EXTENSION: SEAN SCANNELL

4 March 2016

Reaction from David Wagner & 'Scanz'

- Sean Scannell signs contract extension
- Winger staying until summer of 2019
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner
 
Sean Scannell has today signed a contract extension that will keep him at Huddersfield Town until the summer of 2019, with the Club having an option on a further season.
 
The 25 year-old winger was originally contracted to the Club until the end of the current 2016/17 season, with Town having the option to extend for a further year at that point.
 
Born in London, Sean joined Huddersfield Town in the summer of the Club’s promotion to the Sky Bet Championship in 2012 from Crystal Palace.
 
Since joining, ‘Scanz’ has made 91 starts and 55 substitute appearances for the Terriers in all competitions, scoring nine goals.
 
The 2014/15 campaign was arguably Sean’s best in the blue and white stripes. At the end of the season he was named the Blue & White Foundation’s ‘Player of the Year’ and finished runner-up to Jacob Butterfield in the fans’ Player of the Year vote, losing out by just 1%.
 
Sean has just returned to training following a knee injury that has seen him sidelined since 9 January 2016.
 
Huddersfield Town’s Head Coach David Wagner commented:
 
“I am very happy that ‘Scanz’ has signed a new contract with us. He is a great Championship player with the potential to develop further, a great character and is one of the players who has taken our idea and identity onto the pitch every time he has played. 
 
“As I have already said, securing our talented players to the Club for the future is just as important as looking to bring new players in and this is the latest step in doing this, following on from Joe Lolley, Harry Bunn and Joe Murphy.”
