Contract talks to continue with Huddersfield Town captain Jonathan Hogg

- Huddersfield Town’s 2023/24 Retained List confirmed
- Club discussing contract extension with Jonathan Hogg
- Eight out of contract players released

We have confirmed our 2023/24 Retained List today, with eight players who have First Team appearances set to depart the Club at the conclusion of their contracts.

Discussions are also taking place with the representatives of Jonathan Hogg, as well as Academy players Michael Stone and Donnell Garrick, about new contracts with the Club with their existing deals expiring at the end of June 2024.

Eight players with senior appearances for the Club across our First Team and B Team will depart with our thanks and best wishes following the conclusion of their current contracts.

Bringing to an end his second spell in blue and white, Jordan Rhodes departs having registered 97 goals for the Club in all competitions, leaving him sixth placed in our all-time goalscoring charts. Having been on loan with Blackpool in 2023/24, Rhodes had scored 10 times since rejoining the Terriers in 2021.

Japanese international Yuta Nakayama will also leave the Club having spent two years in West Yorkshire after arriving from the Dutch top flight. Having suffered a number of injuries in that time, Nakayama has been limited to just 39 appearances as a Terrier, scoring and assisting twice each.

Having both been out on loan this season, Connor Mahoney and Aaron Rowe will now both leave the Club, with Brahima Diarra also departing. Having arrived in HD1 as a teenager, training compensation will be due for Diarra despite his contractual status. With the 2023/24 campaign concluded, loanees Delano Burgzorg, Tom Edwards and Alex Matos will now return to their parent clubs.

With a desire to overhaul the complexion of our First Team and B Team, a number of contracted players have also been made available for transfer, and discussions with their representatives have already taken place. Should they depart, each will leave the Club with our best wishes for the future.

Finally, 13 players across our B Team and U19 groups will not be offered new contracts and will now also depart the Club. We thank them all for their contribution and wish them well for whatever comes next in their career.
