David Wagner eyeing permanent Aaron Mooy signing


Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has hinted a permanent move for Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy could be on the cards in the summer.

Mooy and the Terriers earned promotion to the Premier League after defeating Reading on penalties in the Championship promotion play-off.

And Wagner admits he faces a busy summer period in order to shape a squad, which will lose a number of key players, as their loan spells have now expired.

“I have a lot of calls to do to be fair, maybe this is why I don’t like to make my head around it because I know how much work is in front of me,” he told a press conference.

“Of course I would like to have Aaron Mooy, I would like to have all of my players with me next season, what is possible we will see.

“He was an outstanding player for us in this season. I just said before Aaron is the heart of our game. He’s able to decelerate when necessary or accelerate if you needed.

“He is so confident and calm on the ball. He has developed his fighting attitude since he arrived because he arrived as a No.10 and usually No.10s are not the best fighters. Now since he played a little bit deeper, he has a great fighting attitude.

“He is one of the outstanding players we had on the season and we are very happy that he was with us and maybe this is the phone call I have to do.”
