Earlier on Thursday, August 9th, the newly promoted English club, Huddersfield Town announced that it has signed Belgium Under-21 international winger Isaac Mbenza a season-long loan from French Ligue 1 Montpellier.
Mbenza, known for his blistering pace joined the Yorkshire side on a season-long loan, with the club playing in the premier league having the option to make the move a permanent deal at the end of the upcoming season.
Last season while playing for Montpellier, the 22-year old Mbenza went on to net 10 goals in 17 substitute appearances and 26 starts for the Ligue 1 club.
Commenting on the loan deal, David Wagner, the manager of Huddersfield went on to say, “It is undoubtedly a great deal for our club as Isaac is a very exciting player and who possesses the tremendous ability and potential. One does not simply get to play for Belgium at the Under-21 level unless they have some really incredible attributes.”
Further, with one player joining their campaign, another has departed as Huddersfield’s German central defender Michael Hefele has left the club to join Championship side, Nottingham Forest.
