“I went on trial at a couple of clubs, but as soon as I came to Huddersfield, I felt the family environment, and everyone was really kind to me.
“In terms of football, my driving is my best skill, but away from that I think I have good leadership skills.”

“I’m really excited to get started here, it’s a big opportunity and I think being given this chance I’ll be able to excel.
“I’ve got good one-vs-one skills, I’m good at driving at defenders and I like to beat my man. I also like to provide for my teammates and score goals.”
Michael and Fopefoluwa will link up with George Danaher’s Under-17 side alongside fellow scholars Dylan Helliwell and Cian Philpott, who both joined Town from Manchester City.
