Huddersfield Town clinch permanent Aaron Mooy deal: report


Premier League new boys Huddersfield Town have agreed a deal with Manchester City to acquire Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy on a full time basis according to reports in the United Kingdom.

Having spent the 2016-17 season on loan with the Terriers from City, manager David Wagner has embarked on a mission to acquire Mooy for good, and the BBC reports he has his man.

Mooy played a crucial role in Town’s charge to the Premier League via the play-offs, tying down a regular starting berth in central-midfield.

He will become the Yorkshire club’s record signing at £8 million with £2 million in add-ons, with buy-back and sell-on clauses inserted into the deal.

Mooy was signed by City from their sister club Melbourne City prior to the beginning of last season but was immediately sent to Huddersfield.

BBC‘s report does not reveal a contract length.

Twenty-six-year-old Mooy is currently on international duty with Australia, who are about to tackle the Confederations Cup in Russia.

There, they will face Germany, Chile and Cameroon.

Huddersfield will open their Premier League account away against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park when the new season gets underway.
