Simpson Seals Terriers Transfer

Huddersfield Town have swooped for promising striker Tyreece Simpson, with the Ipswich Town academy graduate agreeing a four-year contract.

The 20-year-old joins for an undisclosed fee after making seven first-team appearances for the Tractor Boys, as well as 30 outings on loan at Swindon Town last term, scoring 11 goals in that time.

“We’re very happy to welcome Tyreece to Huddersfield Town,” Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby told the club website. “He’s a player we’ve admired and followed for a long time, so it’s great to get this deal over the line. We’ve had to negotiate hard to finalise this deal amid interest from several other clubs, which is unsurprising – it’s not often a player of his ability and promise enters the final year of a contract.

“We want to give Danny (Schofield) as many different options as we can – that’s more important than ever since the increase in the number of players that can be used in each game. Tyreece’s profile as a player is different to the other strikers we have in the first-team squad, so he adds another string to our bow.

“There’s much more to come from Tyreece too, and we believe our coaching and physical programmes will bring that out of him. The character references we’ve received, combined with what he had to say in our meetings, all indicate he will throw himself into that challenge.

“He is currently recovering from injury, so we will have to be patient until that process is complete – we expect that to be around the World Cup break. He’s a player we believe can make an impact over the short and long term here, and we know he will be worth the wait.”

Head Coach Danny Schofield added: “I’m really looking forward to beginning our work on the training pitch with Tyreece as he’s an exciting player, as everyone saw through his loan spell with Swindon Town last season.

“His understanding of the game – the timing of his runs in behind in particular – is impressive for a player of his age, and his physical abilities allowed him to dominate games in Sky Bet League Two whilst still a teenager.

“Whilst we believe he can already impact Championship games when he’s completed his rehabilitation from injury, there’s also clear space for Tyreece to continue to improve. That makes him all the more exciting.”
