Van La Parra departs on permanent deal

- Van La Parra leaves for undisclosed fee
- Dutch winger joins Red Star Belgrade
- Comments from Chairman Phil Hodgkinson

Rajiv van La Parra has completed a permanent transfer to Serbian side Red Star Belgrade for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old joined Huddersfield Town from Wolves in March 2016 - initially on loan - before completing the permanent switch at the end of the season.

Rajiv made 101 appearances in all competitions for the Club, netting seven times with his first coming in the 1-0 win over Wolves in August 2016 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson commented:

“We received the offer for Rajiv during the Luton Town game and both him and his representatives made it very clear that he didn’t want to be a Huddersfield Town player anymore.

“The Club always has to come first and it’s important that the players in our squad are fully committed to the cause. I want players who want to play for this Football Club and its fantastic supporters; they deserve that.

“The offer meets our valuation and the player gets the move he was pushing for.”
