Young Terriers return to Huddersfield Town at conclusion of loan deals
- Four current B Team players return to Club from loan
- Kian Harratt, Jacob Chapman, Giosue Bellagambi and Kyle Hudlin
- Comments from Loan Manager David Fox
With the opening of the 2023 January transfer window, several loan agreements concerning a number of our Young Terriers have come to an end.
Either the natural conclusion of their time on loan or recalled by the Club thanks to a contractual option to do so, four of our current B Team players are now back at the Millers Oils Performance Complex with goalkeepers Jacob Chapman and Giosue Bellagambi joined by forwards Kian Harratt and Kyle Hudlin.
Harratt has been training with the B Team for some time, playing and scoring in the Premier League Cup since returning from Bradford City – scoring once in three starts with the Bantams – with his registration now returned to the Club allowing him to be selected in competitive fixtures. Both goalkeepers Chapman and Bellagambi have returned following the conclusion of their loan terms with Salford City and Spennymoor Town where they played five times and 14 times respectively.
Hudlin, who has scored four times in seven starts for AFC Wimbledon, has been recalled in line with a break clause in his loan agreement, allowing him to join back up with our B Team.
Loan Manager David Fox commented:
“It’s been a busy period for our loan players, but that’s not out of the ordinary for this stage of the season. Both goalkeepers Jacob Chapman and Gio Bellagambi have performed really well and returned at the expiration of their loan deals, which is the norm. Both got some valuable experience of first team football and enjoyed their time out with their respective sides.
“As we know, Kian returned to us some time ago after a challenging period with Bradford City but has really put his head down and worked hard since, contributing at B Team level and impressing in the Premier League Cup, which is obviously of real importance to us. Having travelled with the First Team to Marbella and played in the friendly against Olympiacos, he’s really pushed since rejoining us and is looking to put that first part of the season behind him.
“When given the opportunity, Kyle has played well for AFC Wimbledon, scoring four times in seven starts. His playing time otherwise has been more limited than anticipated, making 11 appearances from the bench, so to be able to reintegrate him into our B Team group and work with him on his development more closely seemed like the best option for all parties at this moment in time.”
