Huddersfield Town signed Chris Loewe from 2. Bundesliga side 1. FC Kaiserslautern as a free agent on 1 July 2016.
Loewe, a 26 year-old left back, put pen to paper on a three year contact with the Terriers.
Born on 16 April 1989 in Plauen, Germany, Chris started his career in the youth systems of 1. FC Wacker Plauen and then Chemnitzer FC, signing professional terms at the latter.
He made his professional debut in November 2007, often playing on the left side of midfield for Chemnitzer.
After 88 appearances and nine goals, he joined German giants Borussia Dortmund in 2011 on a four year contract.
Chris made 11 appearances for Jürgen Klopp’s First Team and was part of the squad that won the 2011/12 Bundesliga title and the DFB-Pokal Cup; he also played in the Champions League.
During his time at the Club, Loewe also worked under Town’s current Head Coach David Wagner in the Dortmund II side.
5’ 8” tall Chris moved to 2. Bundesliga side 1. FC Kaiserslautern in 2013, where he established himself as a First Team regular and was eventually made captain. He has made well over 100 appearances for the Red Devils.
Loewe arrived in West Yorkshire with just over 200 appearances under his belt in Germany’s top three divisions, with over 100 of those coming in the second tier. During those games he notched an impressive 40 assists for his teammates.
