According to Daily Mail journalist James Nursey, David Wagner has agreed a new contract as Huddersfield Town head coach. Wagner’s agent, John Morris, states that the German will be remaining after guiding the Terriers to the Premier League.
This news comes despite the fact he has received ‘other offers’ from elsewhere, most likely overseas. The reputation of Wagner has been forever increasing ever since he took charge at the John Smith’s Stadium. After winning the play-off final against Reading, many were left wondering if that would be his last act as manager of the club.
Any official announcement from the club should be confirmed within the coming days or weeks. Now this sideshow is out of the way, the former Borussia Dortmund coach can fully focus on preparing for his debut season in the top flight. Transfer targets will be first on his agenda, where some big names could be heading to Yorkshire in time for the new campaign.
In addition to this news, Huddersfield fans can celebrate something else too. Tommy Smith was taken off injured towards the end of the play-off final recently. He was seen later on that day hobbling on crutches with an ice pack tightly wrapped around his foot. The official club website has revealed that he has suffered a small fracture, but is expected to fully recover in time for pre-season. Philip Billing and Jon Gorenc Stankovic, who both have knee problems, are also on the mend as well. The good news just keeps on coming out of Huddersfield!
