CONOR Coady has joined Championship side Huddersfield Town from Liverpool FC for an undisclosed fee.

The former England Under 20 captain, from Haydock, today completed the permanent move to the Terriers.

Coady, who had made two first team appearances for the Reds, told the Huddersfield Town 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.

“I spoke with Brendan Rodgers about his plans and he told me where I stood, which I thanked him for – that’s exactly what I needed."

Coady, 21, had enjoyed a successful loan spell with Sheffield United last season, featuring prominently in their run to the FA Cup semi-final.

He added: “Huddersfield has a track record of developing players, so when I heard about the club’s interest there was only one place I wanted to come.

“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.

“It’s a very young and athletic team here and it its clear what the club is building. Hopefully I can come in and add to that.

“I know a lot of the Liverpudlian lads that are already at the club; there are some really top players here.

“Huddersfield play their own style of football; they move the ball around the pitch really well. That should suit my style; I like to get on the ball and move things forward. I want to create goals and score goals, but equally I can contribute defensively."
