Danish international signs for the season
- Jonas Lössl signs on loan for Town
- Goalkeeper joins from Bundesliga side 1. FSV Mainz 05
- Town has option to buy at the end of the loan
Huddersfield Town has tonight completed the signing of Danish international goalkeeper Jonas Lössl on a season-long loan from Bundesliga club 1. FSV Mainz 05.
The 28 year-old custodian joins the Terriers on loan until 30 June 2018, at which point Huddersfield Town has the option to complete a permanent transfer.
Standing at an imposing 6’ 5” tall, Lössl arrives at the John Smith’s Stadium with over 250 top flight appearances under his belt in Denmark, France and Germany, as well as European and international experience.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“As everyone knows, we were very successful with our loans last season and now we have had the chance to bring another high-quality player to the Club in this way.
“He was part of a club in Mainz that had a difficult season in 2016/17 and that is why we have this rare chance to take a player of his quality on loan. I trust and believe in his talent and potential.
“Jonas has all the skills that you want from a modern goalkeeper; he is a good shot-stopper, he is a real presence and he is good with the ball at his feet too.
“I also know he is also a good character; a real family man, who speaks fluent English. He will fit in perfectly with our squad.”
