Striker returns to Huddersfield Town
- Huddersfield Town completes the signing of Danny Ward
- Free agent signs a three-year contract with the Terriers
- Comments from Carlos Corberán and Leigh Bromby
Danny Ward has today become Huddersfield Town’s first signing of the 2020 summer window, joining as a free agent after departing Cardiff City, pending international clearance.
Ward, who returns for his second spell with the Terriers, has put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract.
The 29-year-old is no stranger to Huddersfield Town supporters, having made 140 appearances for the Club between 2011 and 2015. He has since gone on to help Cardiff to promotion to the Premier League and make over 200 appearances in the top two divisions.
The striker, who can also play out wide, arrives back in West Yorkshire with a wealth of experience.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán commented:
“We are really happy to add Danny to our squad; he’s a very interesting player with a lot of experience at this club and in this league.
“He’s really ambitious and when a player wants to come back to a club it’s because he feels something special about being a Terrier and feels that he still has something important to give to the fans.
“As a striker he gives us a lot of options; he makes very intelligent runs, looks always for the long option, and will help us in the build-phase because he’s good with the ball when he comes deep.”
Leigh Bromby, Town’s Head of Football Operations, added:
“It’s rare to find a player of Danny Ward’s age, and with his experience, as a free agent.
“It’s no surprise that he had offers from several other clubs, but he wanted to come back to Huddersfield Town.
“He has a wealth of experience and will be a real benefit to us, not only on the pitch, but in the dressing room as well.”
