Forward agrees loan deal for the 2023/24 season

- Delano Burgzorg agrees to join Huddersfield Town on loan
- Forward will join from Bundesliga side 1. FSV Mainz 05
- Comments from Mark Cartwright & Neil Warnock

We’re delighted to announce that we have agreed a deal to take Delano Burgzorg on loan from Bundesliga club 1. FC Mainz 05!

The 24-year-old forward, who plays as a central striker but can also operate out wide, will join the club on loan for the 2023/24 season once the relevant international clearances have been received.

A former Netherlands Under-20 international, Delano will arrive with extensive playing experience in the Eredivisie with Heracles Almelo and De Graafschap, as well as in the Italian second division with Spezia.

As part of the deal, we would have the ability to make the move permanent at the end of the 2023/24 season.

He will take the number seven shirt during his time with the club.

Town’s Sporting Director Mark Cartwright commented:

“We’re excited to bring Delano to Huddersfield Town. He’s a player we’ve watched carefully and who comes with strong recommendations from my contacts in Germany.

“His profile as a player is different to the other forwards that we have at the club. His first thought is to run in behind, which he does to good affect with his pace and direct style. He’s got real flair too and can bring an X factor to our play.

“I must thank Kevin Nagle and Jake Edwards for supporting us in getting the deal for Delano over the line. With their backing, we’re still hopeful that we can bring a couple of further reinforcements in before the window closes.”

Manager Neil Warnock explained:

“We’ve made no secret of the fact that we’ve wanted to add to our forward options in this window, so it’s good that we’ve agreed this deal with Delano. Our recruitment team have looked at the players that are available and he feels like the one who fits the bill, because he should add a different dimension to our play.

“When I talked with Delano, it was clear that he was very keen to come over to England and prove what he can do. He’s desperate to show that he can handle the Sky Bet Championship. I’m looking forward to working with him.”

You can welcome Delano to Huddersfield Town on Instagram – he’s on there as Lanodb.
