Club remain hopeful of recruiting Huddersfield Town midfielder this summer, admits manager

Harrogate Town boss Simon Weaver has said the club remain hopeful that Huddersfield Town talent Brahima Diarra can return for a second loan spell this summer.

Huddersfield Town sanctioned a temporary exit for talented midfielder Diarra back in January, sending him on loan to League Two side Harrogate Town for the second half of the 2021/22 campaign.

The youngster had impressed in the Terriers’ youth ranks and he made a strong start to life with the Sulphurites too.

Diarra managed one goal and two assists in 13 outings before a season-ending injury struck in March.

Diarra has since returned to the John Smith’s Stadium and is still continuing his recovery from injury. However, Harrogate Town are still holding onto the hope of a summer reunion.

Speaking to the Harrogate Advertiser, Weaver has said that conversations have taken place over a possible return, saying:

“It is still a possibility. We all love Brahima here, we 100 per cent want him to come back, he was a real fans’ favourite, so exciting.

“And, Huddersfield know that he was happy with us, he was playing games and he was developing.

“We’ve had conversations with them about Brahima already this summer. But, if anything is to happen there then it will be further down the line because obviously the lad is recovering from injury.”

Despite the promising words from Weaver, the Harrogate Town boss did go on to insist that he is mindful of being respectful to Huddersfield Town‘s plans for the 19-year-old despite his desire to bring him back on loan again.

One to watch…

Paris-born Diarra certainly looks as though he has a bright future in the game ahead of him.

The injury suffered back in March has slowed the momentum he had gained somewhat but his loan with Harrogate Town remains a valuable experience, and it proved that he has what it takes to impress on the senior stage despite still being in the early stages of his career.

Be it with Harrogate Town, Huddersfield Town or someone else, Diarra will be determined to kick on and continue his development next season once he has recovered from injury.
