Midfielder breaks distal fibula in First Team training
- Danny Williams injured in training
- Scans reveal fracture to distal fibula
- USA international ruled out for the remainder of the campaign
Huddersfield Town can confirm that midfielder Danny Williams will be out for the rest of the season due to an injury sustained in training.
The 29 year-old midfielder suffered the injury in Wednesday’s training session as David Wagner’s side prepared for this weekend’s Premier League match against Crystal Palace.
Subsequent scans have confirmed that Danny has suffered a fracture to the distal fibula, meaning he will be side-lined for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign.
Danny will now undergo surgery on Friday before starting his road to recovery.
The USA international has made 24 appearances in his debut season for the Terriers, starting 11 times in the Premier League. The midfielder also has one goal to his name, scoring in the Club’s 2-1 Emirates FA Cup win over Bolton Wanderers in January.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner commented:
“We are all disappointed that Danny has suffered this injury and now we offer him our full support as he begins his recovery.
“He’s adapted well to football in the Premier League and has been in some great form for us recently.
“He’s a big character in the dressing room too and I have no doubt that he will be determined to come back fitter and stronger than before.
“In his absence, we will do everything we can to make sure Danny is back playing Premier League football with Huddersfield Town next season.”
David Wagner will give a further update on Town's team news in his press conference on Friday.
