England Under-20 international becomes a Terrier
- Huddersfield Town makes first signing of 2020
- Emile Smith Rowe arrives on loan from Arsenal
- Comments on the England U20 international from Danny Cowley
Huddersfield Town has completed the signing of Emile Smith Rowe on loan from Arsenal for the rest of the 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship season!
An attack-minded midfielder, Smith Rowe is one of the brightest English talents of his age. He generally plays centrally but has the capability of operating from the left side too.
Smith Rowe, 19, has already made 15 competitive appearances for the Gunners in the Europa League, Premier League and cup competitions, scoring four goals, whilst making three further appearances for Bundesliga side RB Leipzig during a loan spell at the start of 2019.
Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley commented:
“We’re delighted to complete the loan move to bring Emile to the Club today, as it’s the culmination of an ongoing process that began in early November.
“Nicky and I spent a week at Arsenal in the summer and Emile is a player that we know well. We’ve got some good relationships with the Club and we’re very appreciative of them loaning us one of their very best young players.
“Emile will give us the creative link that we’ve been missing. He can play in a range of attacking positions and he can speed up our play. We’re really looking forward to working with him.”
