Dutch midfielder becomes a Terrier for the 2020/21 season

- Huddersfield Town complete the signing of Carel Eiting
- Dutch midfielder arrives on loan from Ajax for 2020/21
- Comments from Leigh Bromby and Carlos Corberán

Huddersfield Town has completed the signing of Dutch midfielder Carel Eiting on loan from Eredivisie giants Ajax for the 2020/21 season!

22-year-old Eiting, who will wear the number 14 shirt during his time with the Terriers, passed his medical at Canalside and will be available to Head Coach Carlos Corberán as soon as international clearance is received.

Born in Amsterdam, Eiting – a left footed central midfielder who has been capped by the Netherlands up to Under-21 level – has progressed through the Academy at Ajax before going on to play 30 games across the Champions League, Europa League, Eredivisie and the Dutch Cup.

He was a substitute in their opening day win over Sparta Rotterdam, but now moves to England to feature for the Terriers.

Huddersfield Town’s Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:

“Carel is a player who was identified by our recruitment process some time ago, but he wasn’t one we expected to be available as we entered the current transfer window. However, situations develop and change as time progresses.

“He is a top talent and, when we learned it would be possible to bring him here, we had to act fast.

“There has been considerable interest in Carel, as you would expect in a player who was in Ajax’s squad last weekend. Everyone, from myself and Carlos to several coaches across all disciplines, spoke with Carel on Microsoft Teams until late in evenings to convince him that Huddersfield Town is the right place for him to continue his football.”

Head Coach Carlos Corberán added:

“Carel is a young player with real potential, who makes the squad stronger. He’s very technically skilled; very comfortable on the ball.

“He’s a midfielder who give us different options; he can play as a playmaker, in more attacking positions or as a mixed, box-to-box midfielder.

“We hope that he shows all the skills that he has here at Huddersfield Town.”

You can welcome Carel to Huddersfield Town on Instagram – he’s careleiting.
