Welcome to Huddersfield Town, Rhys Healey!
The striker joins the Terriers for an undisclosed fee from fellow Sky Bet Championship side Watford and has agreed a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.
A consistent scorer at many levels during his career, it was a three-year spell with French side Toulouse that earned him a move back to the second tier this summer. He netted 34 league goals in his first two seasons in France to help his side gain promotion to Ligue 1 and was named in the Ligue 2 Team of the Year in 2021/22 having netted 20 league goals.

He’s scored a goal every two league games over his last five years playing across the Sky Bet Championship, Ligue 1, Ligue 2, Sky Bet League One and Sky Bet League Two.
Sporting Director Mark Cartwright commented:
“We’ve followed Rhys for a long period and had a strong interest in bringing him to the club this summer, so we have worked very hard all this month to convince Watford to allow him to join us.
“We’ve been very clear in our desire to add quality strikers to our squad this month and Rhys is a proven goalscorer. He’s very keen to show what he can do in a Huddersfield Town shirt and every reference we’ve got on him from his previous clubs has been glowing.
“We’re delighted to get this move completed. Once again, I have to thank the owner for his backing on Rhys and throughout the window, as it has allowed us to really improve the squad.”
Manager Darren Moore added:
“I really like what Rhys brings to the teams he plays for.
“He’s a natural goalscorer; he finds ways to score all different types of goals, and has done at every level throughout his career.
“He’s also a tireless worker and a clever player. As a defender myself in my playing days, he would be the kind of player that is a real pain to play against!
“I think his qualities will mesh really well with the other strikers at the club.”
