Huddersfield Town permanently sign key player on three-year contract

Sky Bet Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town have announced the permanent signing of on-loan FC Ingolstadt forward Elias Kachunga. The 24-year-old will officially join permanently from July 1st, where he’ll start a three-year contract. He joins for a fee of £1.127million (1.3million EUR).

The fans’ favourite has played a pivotal role in the Terriers making an unlikely push for promotion into the Premier League. Heading into the international break, Kachunga has scored eleven goals in 40 appearances for the club. The German-born attacker has impressed in his right winger position this year, quickly becoming one of Wagner’s key men.

He has more game time under his belt than any other first team player at Huddersfield this season so far and was recently called up to the Democratic Republic of Congo squad for an upcoming friendly against Kenya.

Speaking on the news of the signing, Wagner stated that Kachunga ‘suits the English game perfectly’ and, considering his age, there is ‘still more to come’,

“I said in the summer that this move was perfect for the Club and the player, as the loan gave everyone the chance to see how Elias would adapt to English football. I think it’s now correct to say he has adapted well!
“His style of play suits the English style perfectly. He has shown that he has learned from some early experiences in his career to become a better player.
“It’s more remarkable that he came to us as a competitor at number nine, but has made the place on the right of midfield his own through his performances.
“I know he is a very popular man with the players and fans, so completing this move is a great day for the Club. The most exciting thing is that I believe, at 24 years old, there is still more to come from Elias!”
