Jordan Rhodes is delighted to be coming back to Huddersfield Town after seven years away.
The striker has agreed a three-year deal starting on 1 July, and is keen add to the 87 goals he already has for the Club.
When speaking to #HTTV about his return, he explained why he wanted to be a Terrier again.
“I’m delighted and chuffed! Since I knew of the interest it was a no brainer and I’m really looking forward to getting started.
“I’ve got so many great memories, there’s great people here, and just the possibility of pulling on the Town shirt again and hopefully scoring a goal or two; that filled me with so much joy in previous years.
“The possibility to have the chance to do that again is something that really drives me.”
It was at Town when Jordan broke on to the scene and started to make a name for himself in the English Football League.
He explained what it was like joining the Terriers as a 19-year-old and how he wants to repay the Club for the faith it showed him.
“I felt like it was my first real break in football, coming up here away from Ipswich and normal surroundings, throwing myself into uncomfortable and not normal territory, but I did find myself at home.
“Coming back here now does feel like coming home again. I owe so much to this club, a huge debt, and I just can’t wait to get started again.”
He also can’t wait to be back playing in-front of the Town supporters, who he previously built a fantastic rapport with.
“It’s been such a strange year, 18 months without supporters in stadiums, so I’m sure in that first home game of the season the place with be rocking.
“Hopefully, it is maximum attendance, and everyone can make up for lost time.”
