Liverpool: Coady Joins Huddersfield

Liverpool: Coady Joins Huddersfield

Young Reds midfielder Conor Coady has moved to Huddersfield Town in a transfer worth around £500k...

Liverpool completed two transfer deals in one day yesterday by following the loan capture of Javier Manquillo with the sale of Conor Coady to Huddersfield Town.

The combative midfielder has joined the Championship outfit permanently for a fee of around £500k, which could rise due to performance-related add-ons.

"I'm made up," revealed the 21-year-old to the official Terriers website. "When I heard Huddersfield wanted to sign me, it was immediately interesting.

"The last few days have been very exciting for me. I've been away (in the USA with Liverpool`s First Team) and I couldn't wait to get home and get the move sorted. I'm really happy to be here...

"This Club has big ambitions, which is something I want to be a part of. I want to help Huddersfield Town progress up the Championship table. With the players that are here, who knows where it can take us."

A product of Liverpool's Academy, Coady made his senior Reds debut in a Europa League tie against Anzhi Makhachkala in November 2012.

A Premier League bow followed later in the same season when he appeared as a substitute in a 3-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Coady, who has been capped by England from U16 to U20 level, spent last term on loan at League One side Sheffield United.

There he made 50 appearances, including one at Wembley in an FA Cup semi-final, scoring six goals.

Coady's departure is likely to be the first of many over the coming weeks with established names such as Daniel Agger and Pepe Reina, who is close to joining Bayern Munich, expected to be part of the exodus.

Vital Verdict
Not a surprise to see Coady move on - it's probably what he needed at this stage of his career. Regular first team appearances were never going to be likely for Liverpool and sometimes it's pointless sending a player out on loan repeatedly when both parties know the individual is not likely to quite make the grade at the very top level. That said, he has ability and by all accounts is a popular guy and a model professional. Everyone at Vital Liverpool would like to wish Conor well for the rest of his career.
