Coady delighted by Town move

Huddersfield's new signing Conor Coady has expressed his delight to have completed his move to the John Smith's Stadium.

The Terriers fended off interest from a host of Sky Bet Championship clubs to land the former Liverpool midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Sheffield United.

The 21-year-old made four appearances for the Reds' first team during pre-season and returned home from their tournament in the USA to sign a three-year deal with Mark Robins' Town.

"I'm made up," Coady told the club's offficial website. "When I heard Huddersfield wanted to sign me, it was immediately interesting.

"The last few days have been very exciting for me. I've been away and I couldn't wait to get home and get the move sorted. I'm really happy to be here.

"Huddersfield Town is a fantastic club that has produced some great players.

"There's real stability here thanks to some very good people. The club has a track record of developing players, so when I heard about the club's interest there was only one place I wanted to come.

"This club has big ambitions, which is something I want to be a part of.

"I want to help Huddersfield Town progress up the Championship table. With the players that are here, who knows where it can take us."
