Experienced player extends his stay at the Club- Martin Cranie signs a contract extension at Huddersfield Town
- Defender extends his stay until 2018
- Reaction from Head Coach David Wagner
Huddersfield Town defender Martin Cranie has today signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Club until the summer of 2018.
The 30 year-old right back’s existing contract was due to run until this summer, with this new deal extending it for a further 12 months.
Former England Under-21 international Cranie arrived at Town in the summer of 2015 after a successful trial period having previously played well over 200 games in the Sky Bet Championship for the likes of Southampton, Coventry City, and Barnsley.
He has made 35 starts and 15 substitute appearances during 18 months with the Terriers, which includes five starts and six games as a substitute in the current 2016/17 campaign.
Huddersfield Town’s Head Coach David Wagner explained:
“I am delighted that we have agreed a deal to keep Martin at the Club, as he is a very important player in our squad.
“He has been excellent in the games he has played this season and last, making him a real competitor for the right back position alongside Tommy Smith. It is perfect for me to have two high quality players who can both play. His ability to play different positions is valuable too.
“Martin is a great professional and knows the Sky Bet Championship very well too, which has been very helpful as the players who joined us this season got used to the division. He’s a very important character in the dressing room.
“I have always said that keeping our good players at the Club is just as important as bringing new ones in, so I’m very happy today.”
