Defender departs to play Premier League football
- Harry Toffolo departs Huddersfield Town
- Defender completes permanent transfer to Nottingham Forest
- Comments from Head of Football Leigh Bromby
Harry Toffolo has today completed a permanent transfer to Nottingham Forest.
The newly promoted Premier League side has paid an undisclosed fee for the defender.
Toffolo has become an immensely popular player with Town fans and behind-the-scenes at the Millers Oils High Performance Complex since joining the Club from Lincoln City in the January 2020 transfer window. A mainstay of the side over the last 30 months, he was named one of three vice captains ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
Harry, whose contract was due to expire in the summer of 2023, departs the Club having played 99 times in Town colours, scoring nine goals.
Town’s Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:
“On behalf of everyone at the Club, I want to thank Harry and wish him the very best of luck as he embarks upon his new challenge. Harry made a massive contribution to our team, on and off the pitch, and now he has the chance to play at the highest level.
“As has been reported, we did enter new contract negotiations with Harry and his representatives some time ago. We offered him a deal that would have made him our highest paid player at the time, and he turned it down. That happens in football and every other walk of life, and it certainly did not adversely affect our relationship - or Harry’s performances last season.
“It did mean that he was entering the final year of his contract, which is a big consideration for a Club. When the opportunity to play Premier League football also became a possibility, it made this move right for everyone involved.”
