Huddersfield Town’s Croatian midfielder Ivan Paurevic has left the Terriers by mutual consent, and is set to return to one of his former clubs, according to Sky Sports.

The 25-year-old is imminently expected to re-sign for Russian Premier League side FC Ufa, the club he played at for two years before his move to the Championship.

Paurevic has failed to make an impact on Huddersfield’s first team this season, having made just two substitute appearances since his summer move from Russia.

Town boss David Wagner told the club’s official website that the player’s desire for regular first-team football paved the way for his premature exit.

“Ivan has worked very hard in training every day since arriving at the club in the summer, but he has found it hard to get a starting shirt because of the form of Aaron Mooy, Jonathan Hogg, Dean Whitehead and Philip Billing,”

“We totally understand that Ivan wants to play regular football and this transfer will give him the chance to do that.

“He is a fantastic character and everyone here wishes him all the best at FC Ufa and for the future.”

The 6’5″ playmaker began his career at Borussia Dortmund, where he played under Wagner for the German club’s reserve side for two years.

He then had a spell at Fortuna Dusseldorf where he made sixteen appearances, before making the switch to FC Ufa.

During a two-year spell at the club he notched up five goals in 57 appearances, and his form for the Russian outfit attracted the attention of Huddersfield, who signed the player in the summer on an intial three-year contract.

However, his time in England has come to a premature end with Paurevic leaving the cliub after just seven months.
