Contract discussions continue with Danny Ward and Josh Koroma

- Huddersfield Town’s 2022/23 Retained List confirmed
- Club discussing contracts with Danny Ward and Josh Koroma
- Eight out-of-contract players released

Our 2022/23 Retained List can be confirmed today, with seven players who have First Team appearances for us set to depart the Club at the conclusion of their contracts.

We can confirm that we are talking to the representatives of Danny Ward and Josh Koroma, alongside B Team player Luke Daley, about new contracts with the Club, with their current deals running out at the end of June 2023.

Several senior players will depart the Club with our thanks and best wishes at the conclusion of their current contracts.

Josh Ruffels and Tomáš Vaclík leave having made vital contributions in our successful efforts to retain our Sky Bet Championship status under Neil Warnock.

Florian Kamberi also departs at the end of his short-term contract, whilst Rolando Aarons leaves after two-and-a-half years at the Club.

Four players who have been out on loan this season – Ryan Schofield, Matty Daly, Romoney Crichlow and Danny Grant – will also depart the Club.

Six loanees return to their parent clubs; Joseph Hungbo, Matthew Lowton, Martyn Waghorn, Tino Anjorin, Anthony Knockaert and Jordan Smith.

We have taken our options to extend the contracts of B Team players Charles Ondo, Ben Midgley, and Michael Stone into the 2023/24 season, whilst Under-19 defender Archie Sheppard has been offered a third-year scholarship contract.

10 players across the B Team and Under-19 groups will not be offered a new contract and will depart the Club. Thank you to all of them for their contribution, and the very best of luck with what comes next.
