21 year-old moves after successful loan period- Kyle Dempsey departs Huddersfield Town
- Midfielder completes permanent move to Fleetwood Town
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner
Kyle Dempsey has today departed Huddersfield Town and completed a permanent move to Sky Bet League 1 club Fleetwood Town.
At the request of Fleetwood Town, the terms of Kyle's transfer will remain undisclosed.
Kyle joins the Cod Army following a successful spell on loan at the Club during the 2016/17 season. He has scored twice in 42 starts and three substitute appearances for Uwe Rösler’s side, which finished third in the Sky Bet League 1 table before being defeated in the Play-Off semi-finals.
Dempsey’s performances resulted in him being named the Club’s ‘Young Player of the Year’ in its annual awards.
Dempsey joined the Terriers from Sky Bet League 2 side Carlisle United in July 2015, signing a three-year contract. He went on to score once in 12 starts and 12 substitute appearances for the Club during the 2015/16 season ahead of his summer loan to Fleetwood.
Huddersfield Town’s Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“I believe this transfer is the correct one for Huddersfield Town, Fleetwood Town and importantly for Kyle’s career.
“He has done very well during his loan spell and is a player with talent, but he needs and wants to play regularly at this stage of his career and this is not something we can offer him at Huddersfield Town.
“Kyle worked very hard in every single training session during his time with us and I wish him good luck in his career with Fleetwood.”
