Winger becomes a full-time Terrier
- Paperwork complete on Isaac Mbenza’s transfer
- Winger makes loan move from Montpellier HSC permanent
- Isaac will return to the Club on Monday 15 July
Isaac Mbenza has today joined Huddersfield Town on a permanent transfer from French club Montpellier HSC.
The Belgium Under-21 international has put pen-to-paper on a two-year contract after an option in his original loan agreement was exercised, with the Club having the option of a further year’s extension.
Mbenza, who played for French side Valenciennes and Belgium top-flight outfit Standard Liege before joining Montpellier, joined Town on a season-long loan just two days before the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
Having missed Town’s pre-season build-up, he had to wait until 27 October to make his first Premier League start, only making four league starts during David Wagner’s tenure as Head Coach.
He has played more during Jan Siewert’s time at the Club despite a calf problem that side-lined him for a month, starting six games and scoring his first Town goal in the penultimate game of the campaign; the 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United.
Isaac played in all three games of the Belgium Under-21s’ European Championship campaign during June and is scheduled to return to the Club on Monday 15 July.
