Defender pens a three-year contract

- Scott Malone completes transfer to Huddersfield Town
- Defender signs from Fulham for an undisclosed fee
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner

Huddersfield Town has today completed the permanent signing of defender Scott Malone from Fulham.

The 26 year-old left back joins the Terriers from Sky Bet Championship side Fulham for a fee that will remain undisclosed at the request of the Cottagers.

Malone has put pen to paper on a three year contract, with Huddersfield Town having the option to extend the deal by a further season in 2020.

Scott will be a familiar name to most Town fans after a standout year for the London club, which resulted in him being named in both the EFL and PFA’s Championship Teams of the Year as Fulham reached the Play-Off semi-finals.

An attack-minded full back, Scott also got on the scoresheet at the John Smith’s Stadium for his club last season.

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:

“I’m excited to welcome Scott to Huddersfield Town. Our fans will have seen in our games against Fulham last season what a good player he is and I know his abilities will suit our style of play very well.

“Scott is a good physical presence and is a very capable defender, plus he adds a lot going forward. He shows good football intelligence to time his forward runs and can setup goals for teammates and scoring them himself.

“We already have a very good left back in Chris Löwe and a real young talent in Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, but as we enter our first Premier League season it is so important to have competition and the ability to rotate our side, as we did so successfully last season.”
