Huddersfield Town winger Ramadan Sobhi has withdrawn from the Eygpt squad and will return to West Yorkshire to complete his recovery a knee injury.

The 21-year-old has made just one substitute appearance for Town this season and was sidelined for the last three matches due to a knee injury. Sobhi was still selected for Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Niger on Saturday but has since withdrawn due to the knock. Huddersfield boss David Wagner revealed last week Sobhi would be back after the international break, putting him in contention to return when Crystal Palace visit the John Smith's Stadium on September 15. Ravij van La Parra is expected to continue on the left wing until Sobhi is fully fit.

Huddersfield Town claimed a hard-fought away point in a 1-1 draw against Everton at Goodison Park.

David Wagner made two changes to the side which earned a goalless draw against Cardiff City last weekend. Jonas Lossl replaced the injured Ben Hamer in goal, and Chris Lowe was selected to replace the suspended Jonathan Hogg as the manager went with a five-man defence. The Terriers weathered some early chances and grew in confidence as the game, eventually punishing Everton in the 34th minute when Phil Billing headed home a deflected Chris Lowe corner. The lead only lasted two minutes however as the hosts responded through Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who powered a header beyond the outstretched hand of Lossl. Despite struggling to create chances from open play, Huddersfield held on to secure their second point of the season, moving them out of the drop zone to 17th.

Danny Williams could make his long-awaited league return following a 69-minute run out on Tuesday night.

The Terriers midfielder has been side-lined since suffering a distal fracture to his fibula in training five months ago but made his comeback in the Carabao Cup tie at Stoke. Williams came through the game unscathed, although he was unable to prevent Huddersfield from suffering their third loss of the campaign. David Wagner must now decide whether the US international is ready to be thrust back in, at the Premier League deep end, with a tricky trip to Goodison Park on Saturday. Williams could replace Jonathan Hogg who was dismissed for an ugly collision with Harry Arter after he appeared to push his head towards the Cardiff City man, before shoving him to the floor. "It was heat of the battle, you sometimes get lost in the moment," Arter said. "I'm not sure what the ref gave me a yellow card for to be honest." Hogg will miss the upcoming fixtures against Everton and Crystal Palace.

Huddersfield Town managed a single shot on target and saw Jonathan Hogg sent off and they will consider themselves fortunate to have picked up a point at home against Cardiff City.

It wasn't the outcome that either side wanted. The two clubs had combined for a total of one goal between them over the first two matches of the season and neither added to their totals as they both engaged in another exercise in futility. Fantasy managers should be fleeing any Terriers attackers they drafted/picked up as things seem to have degenerated since last season when they merely struggled. They have moved from struggling to being pretty abject going forward.

Huddersfield Town's first away match of the season was a rough one, as they suffered a harsh 6-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Town boss David Wagner was forced to make three changes following the home defeat against Chelsea. Zanka and Jonathan Hogg both missed out through injury, while Aaron Mooy was not with the squad to face his former club due to the expected arrival of his second child. It was always going to be a hard ask for the Terriers to get a result at City and an even larger one with three key players unavailable. Huddersfield weathered the storm early but would go on to concede three times in a seven-minute spell. Jon Gornec Stankovic poked home from Steve Mounie's flick to give the visitors a boost just before the break but the second half was again one-way traffic. Wagner's side will look to put this one behind them and bounce back against Cardiff City next weekend.

Huddersfield Town will be without Mathias 'Zanka' Jorgensen for Sunday's clash with Manchester City after the ever-present centre-back picked up a muscular injury in training.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner confirmed that the injury is "not very serious" and hopes Zanka will be able to return for GW3. But with the Dane unavailable for the trip to Manchester, Wagner must set up his defence without one of his mainstays. Jon Gorenc Stankovic could slot in alongside Christopher Schindler and Terence Kongolo if Wagner uses a five-at-the-back system. Alternatively, we could see the return of a traditional back four. Defensive midfielder Jonathan Hogg is also dealing with a hip problem and faces a late fitness test. Put simply; fantasy managers should avoid the Town defence this weekend.

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner has revealed Ben Hamer and Jonas Lossl will battle it out for the starting place between the sticks this season.

Hamer, a free-agent signing from Leicester City, produced a run of impressive displays in pre-season and was given the nod in the against Chelsea. On Hamer getting the first chance ahead of last season’s ever-present number one Lossl, Wagner added: "I have always said that it’s the present that counts. The difference this year to last year is we have competition for the goalkeeping position and this makes me very, very happy. It is now up to these two boys to fight for the shirt every single week, like all the other players have to fight for their place." The 30-year-old's competitive debut for Huddersfield was a rough one as he conceded three goals and made just one save in the 3-0 defeat at the John Smith's Stadium. Lossl returned to pre-season late after going to the World Cup with Denmark but should get his chance once fully fit. It will be interesting to see if Wagner rotates the pair or settles on one after the first couple matches.

Jordy Hiwula has left Huddersfield Town permanently for League 1 club Coventry City.

The 23-year-old departs Huddersfield having made only one senior appearance. During his three-year stint at the club, the forward spent time on loan in League One and established himself as a stable source of goals. Hiwula netted 23 goals in 114 matches away from the John Smith's Stadium, collecting nine of those goals in 43 appearances for Fleetwood Town this past season. He will now link up with former Huddersfield Town manager Mark Robins who guided Coventry back to League One via the League Two Play-Off Final in May.

Steve Mounie scored his first goal of pre-season for Huddersfield Town to secure a 1-1 draw with SV Darmstadt on Sunday.

Manager David Wagner fielded a strong starting XI for the club's final pre-season match in Germany. Philip Billing and Abdelhamid Sabri started in the holding midfield roles, while new signing Adama Diakhaby formed an attacking trio with Rajiv van La Parra and Alex Pritchard in behind Mounie. Aaron Mooy came off the bench after joining up with the squad earlier this week. Darmstadt scored early in the second half, but Mounie came to the rescue in the 80th minute with a header from substitute Jordan Williams' cross. The Terriers return to action on Wednesday, when they host Ligue 1 side Lyon at the John Smith's Stadium.

Bristol Rovers have completed the signing of Huddersfield Town defender Tareiq Holmes-Dennis for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old joined Huddersfield from Charlton Athletic in August 2016 and went on to make 15 appearances for David Wagner's side in their 2016/17 promotion campaign. Holmes-Dennis spent last season on loan at Portsmouth but suffered an injury in the 39th-minute against Rochdale on his debut which forced ruled him out for the remainder of the term. The left-back becomes Bristol manager Darrell Clarke's sixth signing of the summer. "Tareiq is a player that we have chasing for a number of weeks," said Clarke. " Obviously, he had the disappointment of missing the last campaign through injury but has applied himself well to get back fully fit. He arrives at the Club at a good age, and we are hoping that Tareiq is able to hold down the left-back position for a number of seasons to come."

Huddersfield Town has completed the signing of Adama Diakhaby from French side AS Monaco for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old, a former France Under-21 international, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal. A left-footed forward who can play on either wing on in the central attacking midfielder role, Diakhaby scored two goals and tallied three assists in 22 Ligue One appearances for Monaco last season. He becomes Town's fifth signing of the summer, joining Ben Hamer, Ramadan Sobhi, Juninho Bacuna, Erik Durm and Terence Kongolo at the John Smith's Stadium. Said David Wagner: "Diakhaby is a direct player who is comfortable with the ball at his feet and with genuine pace, which suits our style perfectly. We’re really looking forward to working with him on the training pitch and seeing him pull on our blue and white shirt in games, as I’m sure our fans are too!"

Sean Scannell has left Huddersfield Town and joined League One outfit Bradford City on a permanent deal.

The 27-year-old joined Huddersfield from Crystal Palace in 2012 and went on to make 172 appearances for the Terriers in all competitions. Scannell found opportunities for regular football scarce towards the end of his time at the club and spent the first half of last season on loan at Championship side Burton Albion, where he made 19 appearances. On Scannell leaving the club, Town manager David Wagner said: "I’m pleased that we have sorted this transfer for ‘Scanny’, as we cannot offer him the regular football that he wants at this stage of his career. I cannot speak highly enough of him as a person, too; he has been top class since the first day I arrived in Huddersfield."
Jul 19 - 3:15 PM

Huddersfield Town midfielder Jack Payne has joined League One side Bradford City on a season-long loan for the 2018/19 campaign.

The 23-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Oxford United before being recalled in January and afterwards joining Blackburn Rovers. Payne scored four goals and provided ten assists in League One play for both clubs, and clinched promotion to the Championship with Blackburn last season. The creative midfielder will now join up with former Terriers midfielder Michael Collins, who was appointed Bradford City manager in June 2018.
Jul 16 - 5:16 PM

Manager David Wagner confirmed centre-back Christopher Schindler is in clear after limping off during the 3-0 pre-season defeat at League One side Accrington Stanely on Saturday.

Huddersfield manager David Wagner used 22 different players in the second game of pre-season clash, with one side playing the first hour and the second the final half hour. Despite the majority of the squad getting minutes, it was an overall lacklustre performance. Centre-back Christopher Schindler and midfielder Sean Scannell were both forced off, but Wagner confirmed neither injury was serious. "Sean Scannell and Christopher Schindler (both came off with knocks) have dead legs; that is all," said Wagner. "It’s nothing serious." New signing Erik Durm wasn't involved but will begin training next week, while Danny Williams is still recovering from a fractured fibula.
Jul 15 - 7:51 PM

Huddersfield Town completed the permanent transfer of Borussia Dortmund defender Erik Durm for an undisclosed fee on Friday.

A 2014 World Cup winner with Germany, Durm is capable of playing on the left or right in fullback or wing-backs roles and will provide competition for Chris Lowe and Florent Hadergjonaj. The 26-year-old made 64 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund between 2013 and 2017, scoring two goals and providing seven assists, but failed to play last season through injury. Durm is well known to Huddersfield boss David Wagner, who signed him for Borussia Dortmund II in 2012 and converted him from a striker to a defender. "It is not every day that you can bring a player of the quality of Erik to your Club," Wagner said. "Obviously I know Erik well from our time together at Dortmund, and he has all the qualities to be a great success in our ‘Terriers Identity'.
