New Manchester City signing and Caltex Socceroo Aaron Mooy has been loaned out to ambitious Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, says the player’s agent.
Just days after being announced Mooy was exiting Melbourne City and signing for Pep Guardiola's City, the 25-year-old is now set to play for David Wagner’s Terriers where it's hoped he'll slot in as a regular first team player.
“I’m delighted to join Huddersfield Town Football Club, ahead of what I’m sure will be a really exciting season and I can’t wait to get started,” Mooy reportedly said in a statement.
“The Championship is a really tough competition and provides me with a good challenge for the next stage of my career.
“I’m looking forward to meeting my new teammates and to working with the boss David Wagner.
“Huddersfield are a progressive club and are an ideal fit for me to achieve my goals for the coming year.”
Town have been very active in the transfer market in recent weeks with Wagner signing Christopher Schindler from Socceroo Milos Degenek’s TSV 1860 Munich, Michael Hefele of Dynamo Dresden and Luke Coddington from Boro.
Other Huddersfield signings include Rajiv van La Parra (Wolves), Chris Löwe (1. FC Kaiserslautern), Joel Coleman (Oldham Athletic), Ivan Paurevic (FC Ufa), Jack Payne (Southend United) and Elias Kachunga (FC Ingolstadt 04, loan).
