Huddersfield Town manager drops hint about signing players from Leeds

Huddersfield Town boss Carlos Corberan has dropped a hint that he may add players to the Terriers ranks this summer from his former club Leeds, as per Football League World citing report from The Yorkshire Post 

The 37-year-old was appointed as the new manager of Huddersfield in July, saying goodbye to the Whites where he held roles as an assistant of Marcelo Bielsa and the club’s U23s coach. 

He will be looking to strengthen the squad ahead of the next campaign following their disappointing 2019-20 season which saw them finishing 18th at the table. And it seems that he may turn to his former club to help him in his mission. 

The Terriers are already said to be interested in signing the Peacocks player Robbie Gotts, and now the Spanish coach has hinted that he may hire players from his former club. 

He said:

“In the market, some opportunities can arrive from Leeds, some can arrive from League One and other opportunities can come out of England. We will be open and analyse every decision we have to make.

“For me, one of the keys for the success of the season is that we try to make the best decisions. We have spent a lot of time with the sporting director and working with him to try and analyse the opportunities in the market very well and make the squad strong.”

Corberan guided the Whites’ U23s to the National Development League title in 2019, so he might have a very good idea about the young talented players currently at the club. 

So far in the summer transfer window, the Championship side have only signed English footballer Danny Ward, however, the Spaniard will likely be eager to make further recruitments for bolstering their squad ahead of the new season. 

The manager’s hint about signing players from the Whites is not a big surprise considering his previous responsibilities at the club. 

He was successful with the Peacocks U23s and it seems reasonable that he wants to sign players that he trusts.
