Striker signs contract until June 2026
- Striker Tyreece Simpson joins Huddersfield Town
- 20-year-old puts pen to paper on a four-year contract
- Comments from Leigh Bromby & Danny Schofield
Welcome to Huddersfield Town, Tyreece Simpson!
The 20-year-old striker, who stands at 6’ 1” tall, joins the Club from Sky Bet League 1 side Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee.
He’s agreed a contract that runs until 30 June 2026 and will take the number 27 in Danny Schofield’s First Team squad.
Born in Suffolk, Simpson progressed through the Ipswich Academy ahead of a successful loan spell with Swindon Town in the first half of the 2021/22 season. He scored 11 goals in 28 starts for the Robins to fire them into the Sky Bet League 2 Play-Off positions as a teammate of current Town loanee Kaine Kesler-Hayden and B Team defender Romoney Crichlow.
With his Tractor Boys contract expiring at the end of the current season, he has chosen to join Town to continue his rise through football.
Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:
“We’re very happy to welcome Tyreece to Huddersfield Town. He’s a player we’ve admired and followed for a long time, so it’s great to get this deal over the line. We’ve had to negotiate hard to finalise this deal amid interest from several other clubs, which is unsurprising – it’s not often a player of his ability and promise enters the final year of a contract.
“We want to give Danny as many different options as we can – that’s more important than ever since the increase in the number of players that can be used in each game. Tyreece’s profile as a player is different to the other strikers we have in the First Team squad, so he adds another string to our bow.
“There’s much more to come from Tyreece too, and we believe our coaching and physical programmes will bring that out of him. The character references we’ve received, combined with what he had to say in our meetings, all indicate he will throw himself into that challenge.
“He is currently recovering from injury, so we will have to be patient until that process is complete – we expect that to be around the World Cup break. He’s a player we believe can make an impact over the short and long term here, and we know he will be worth the wait.”
Head Coach Danny Schofield added:
“I’m really looking forward to beginning our work on the training pitch with Tyreece as he’s an exciting player, as everyone saw through his loan spell with Swindon Town last season.
“His understanding of the game – the timing of his runs in behind in particular – is impressive for a player of his age, and his physical abilities allowed him to dominate games in Sky Bet League 2 whilst still a teenager.
“Whilst we believe he can already impact Championship games when he’s completed his rehabilitation from injury, there’s also clear space for Tyreece to continue to improve. That makes him all the more exciting.”
