- Goalkeeper signs on a free transfer from Leicester City
- Comments from Head Coach David Wagner
Huddersfield Town can confirm that goalkeeper Ben Hamer will join the Club as a free agent on 1 July 2018.
The 30-year-old shot-stopper will arrive at the John Smith’s Stadium upon the expiry of his current contract at fellow Premier League team Leicester City, signing a three year deal with the Terriers. The Club also has an option to extend his stay by a further year.
Ben arrives with over 300 games in England under his belt, most recently playing at Premier League and Championship level, and will add more competition to the First Team goalkeeping department in the forthcoming season.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner explained:
“Ben’s arrival adds more quality to our already strong goalkeeping department under Paul Clements.
“He is well known to Paul and also played with our First Team Coach Andrew Hughes at Charlton Athletic and both have given him glowing references as a goalkeeper and as a person, which is very important to us.
“I’ve spoken with Ben and he arrives here wanting to play Premier League football, which is great for us all. Jonas Lössl had a fantastic first season at the Club and this further competition will bring even more out of everyone, which is ideal for me and the team.”
