Huddersfield Town swoop for Denmark defender

Huddersfield Town’s preparation for life as a Premier League club continues, with Mathias Jorgensen becoming the latest addition to their squad.

Having clinched promotion to the top-flight after beating Reading in the playoff final, the Terriers have been one of the busiest clubs of the summer. Jorgensen is their eighth signing since that afternoon at Wembley, and manager David Wagner feels he is another important capture.

“He is a very complete defender with great experience of being successful in every league he has played in, which served us well with the signings we made last season too,” he said. “His athleticism and football intelligence will be big assets in the Premier League, for sure.”

The 6ft 3in centre-half began his career with Copenhagen, spending five years there before moving to PSV Eindhoven. His two year spell in Holland was an unproductive one as he struggled to get first team action, and he returned to his previous club in the summer of 2014.

During his time at the Telia Parken he won five league titles and five domestic cups, and he has also collected seven international caps for Denmark. He signs for Huddersfield after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for his signature, and he has penned a three-year contract.

Jorgensen, 27, is the eighth new signing made by Wagner this summer, following Laurent Depoitre, Aaron Mooy, Tom Ince, Kasey Palmer, Danny Williams, Steve Mounie and Scott Malone. Huddersfield begin their campaign as a Premier League club with a trip to Crystal Palace.
