Official: Chelsea Midfielder heads out to PL side Huddersfield on loan

Huddersfield Town have signed Kasey Palmer on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder returns to John Smith’s Stadium where he spent his last campaign, scoring five goals in 26 appearances.

After returning to Stamford Bridge, Palmer signed a new four-year deal with the Blues, but has been quickly loaned back to Huddersfield until June 30, 2018.

Palmer proved to be a fans’ favourite at Huddersfield last season after netting the winner with his second touch for the club in a 2-1 win over Brentford on the opening day of last season.

Despite suffering a hamstring injury in February, Palmer made a surprise appearance in the Wembley Play-Off final against Reading where he helped the Terriers secure Premier League promotion.

Head Coach David Wagner said: “I’m very happy to have Kasey back at the club. As we know from last season, he’s a very talented English player with high potential.

“Just as important, he is a fantastic personality too,” Wagner added. “He has real desire and hunger to be as good as he can be, but he’s also very humble.

“This is the best and most exciting mix that a player can have as he strives to become an excellent Premier League player.

“I know he feels he has unfinished business after his injury last season and I think that determination will be a big plus for him and the team this season.”
