Midfielder joins from Rotherham United for an undisclosed fee

- Ben Wiles signs for Huddersfield Town on a three-year contract
- Midfielder joins from fellow Championship side Rotherham United
- Comments from Mark Cartwright

We’re delighted to confirm the signing of Ben Wiles from fellow Sky Bet Championship side Rotherham United!

We have paid a significant undisclosed fee for the central midfielder, who has agreed a contract that runs until the summer of 2026. The club also has an option on a further year’s extension.

Although only 24 years old, Ben is on the cusp of a century of appearances in the Sky Bet Championship, adding to a further 79 League One appearances during two promotion campaigns with the Millers.

Wiles will wear the number 23 shirt for the Terriers!

Town Manager Neil Warnock explained:

“We wanted to bring in another midfield player during this window, but I look at the likes of Jack Rudoni and David Kasumu, and I didn’t feel the need to sign someone who didn’t improve on what we have backing them up.

“That’s why we’ve been very patient to get Ben, and I’m delighted to get him on board.

"I’ve watched Ben for the last couple of seasons and I think he’s been outstanding. I also think there’s a lot more to come from him as he’s at a good age; he can take everything on board and progress. I’m looking forward to working with him.”

Huddersfield Town’s Sporting Director Mark Cartwright commented:

“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Ben to Huddersfield Town today. There’s a lot of credit to go around for making this happen; it’s been a real team effort, from Neil Warnock to our recruitment team and everyone between.

“I want to give special thanks to our owner Kevin Nagle and Chief Executive Jake Edwards for their backing, as this is a significant investment in terms of the transfer fee.

“We all believe in Ben’s ability to make an impact on the pitch for us, not only this season but also over the coming years too.”
