- Comments from Head Coach Jan Siewert

Huddersfield Town has completed the signing of defender Herbert Bockhorn on a permanent transfer from Borussia Dortmund II.

The 24-year-old right back joins the Terriers for a fee that will remain undisclosed and puts pen-to-paper on a two-year contract, with the Club having an option on an extension into the 2021/22 season.

Herbert is well known to Town’s Head Coach Jan Siewert, having worked under his stewardship at Dortmund for two seasons.

Bockhorn, who can also feature at left back or on the wing, came through the Werder Bremen Academy and previously played for SC Wiedenbrück.

Huddersfield Town’s Head Coach Jan Siewert commented:

“It’s great that we can welcome Herbert to Huddersfield Town today.

“He has some very interesting qualities as a player. His versatility is a real asset; he can play at full back on either side and on the wing, so he’s a great player to have in our squad.

“The move to the Sky Bet Championship is a definite step up in quality for him but he is a player I know well, and I believe he will be a success here.”
