Australian international departs Huddersfield Town for undisclosed fee
- Aaron Mooy joins Brighton & HA permanently
- Terms of the transfer will remain undisclosed
- Comments from Danny Cowley and Phil Hodgkinson
Aaron Mooy has today completed a permanent transfer to Premier League side Brighton & HA.
The terms of the 29-year-old’s transfer to the South Coast side will remain undisclosed.
Aaron originally joined the Terriers on-loan from Manchester City in the summer of 2016 and helped the Club achieve promotion to the Premier League, being named Town’s Player of the Year in his first campaign.
Mooy went on to make over 100 appearances for Town, 65 of those in the Premier League, and scored 11 goals.
The Australian international has been on loan with the Seagulls since the start of the campaign and has made 17 appearances. He has netted two goals for Graham Potter’s side, the last coming against AFC Bournemouth earlier this week.
Huddersfield Town Manager Danny Cowley commented:
“Everyone knows the quality Aaron Mooy possesses. His understandable preference is to play in the Premier League, and he’s been doing very well at Brighton.
“I think the Club did good business in the summer to protect the investment made in Aaron and now we wish him all the best for the future.”
Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson added:
“We would like to thank Aaron for how he conducted himself during his time with us.
“We have a lot of fond memories of Aaron on the pitch; he played an integral part in our promotion and performed well for us in the Premier League. Knowing he was out of contract in the summer, he wanted to do right by the Club and signed a new deal with us, so we wouldn’t lose him for free.
“This move is mutually beneficial for us and Aaron. Everyone involved with Huddersfield Town would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
