- Attacking midfielder joins on loan from Chelsea
- Comments from Leigh Bromby & Danny Schofield
Welcome back to Huddersfield Town, Tino Anjorin!
The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has returned to HD1 from Premier League club Chelsea on a season-long loan, having spent the second half of the 2021/22 campaign with the Club.
Tino returned from the Chelsea First Team’s pre-season camp in the USA on Thursday evening and has joined up with Danny Schofield’s squad at St. George’s Park to continue to prepare for the new season.
An England Under-20 international, Anjorin was in the final stages of recovery from a foot injury when he joined Town last season. He made a total of eight substitute appearances in his first spell, scoring in the 2-1 win at Coventry City in late April to cap off his most impressive performance in our colours.
He now returns to us on the back of those games and a full pre-season with Thomas Tuchel’s Blues – and is raring to go!
Tino will take the number eight shirt during his second spell as a Terrier.
Head Coach Danny Schofield explained:
“I’m incredibly happy to welcome Tino back to the group today, as he has the potential to be a real difference-maker for us on the pitch.
“He joined us on the back of a significant injury last season, and it understandably took him time to recover, but we saw all the ability that has made him so highly regarded across football as the season progressed in training and in flashes on the pitch. In particular, I thought his performance at Coventry City as a second half substitute was outstanding.
“Tino now joins us on the back of that demanding work with us and he’s been flying in pre-season. We’re all excited to have him with us again, and for him to show our fans what he is all about!”
Head of Football Leigh Bromby commented:
“I would like to thank Neil Bath, Carlo Cudicini, and everyone at Chelsea for allowing Tino to return to us. We’ve got a great relationship formed over an extended period now. They’re happy to trust us with their young, talented players, and I believe we’ve repaid that in how we’ve helped their development.
“Tino is up there with most 20-year-olds in the country in terms of talent. He was unlucky last season with the injury he sustained, but our coaches saw more than enough in their work with him to push hard for his return for the coming season.
“We had to be patient as he went away with Chelsea’s First Team, but when the opportunity presented itself, we didn’t hesitate. Tino had lots of options, but it speaks volumes for the work of our staff that he knew this was where he wanted to come.”
