Talented midfielder back from Chelsea
- Kasey Palmer returns to Huddersfield Town for the 2017/18 season
- 20 year-old's loan runs until 30 June 2018
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner on Palmer's return
Kasey Palmer, one of Town’s promotion-winning team of 2017, is back at the Club!
The 20 year-old attacking midfielder has put pen to paper on a loan deal that will see him officially join from fellow Premier League side Chelsea until 30 June 2018.
Londoner Kasey will be a popular sight back at the John Smith’s Stadium after becoming a genuine fans’ favourite during his season-long loan in Town’s promotion campaign.
After scoring with his second ever touch in a Town shirt as a substitute in the 2-1 opening day home win over Brentford in August 2016, Kasey went on to grab a total of five goals and three assists in 17 starts and nine substitute appearances before suffering an apparently season-ending hamstring injury in the home win over Leeds United in February 2017.
However, he made a surprise return to the squad for the Wembley Play-Off Final against Reading, playing the final 22 minutes as a substitute in the successful quest for promotion to the Premier League. Had Christopher Schindler not netted the winning spot-kick, Kasey was next up for the Terriers!
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“I’m very happy to have Kasey back at the Club. As we know from last season, he’s a very talented English player with high potential.
“Just as importantly, he is a fantastic personality too. He has real desire and hunger to be as good as he can be, but he’s also very humble. This is the best and most exciting mix that a player can have as he strives to become an excellent Premier League player.
“I know he feels he has unfinished business after his injury last season and I think that determination will be a big plus for him and the team this season.”
